  3. A beautiful woman and friend. I was so lucky to have her in my life. I have very fond memories of her and I especially loved her laugh.

    1. Her laugh is probably one of the things that I will always remember and cherish. I will always truly miss my grandmother, I will not only miss her laugh but her tight hugs, her smothering kisses, her I love love love you’s, her Coco Chanel perfume, her timeless sense of fashion, her advise, her morning smoothies, her silly Halloween costumes and sweaters, her blue Christmas tree with icicles and angels, and I will forever miss her birthday, Valentines Day, and I love you cards that would spill confetti into your lap when opened. Reading through these few comments has actually been quite helpful for me and has made me really think about all the truly wonderful things about my grandmother that I will so greatly miss, so thank you all for putting such wonderful things on here for her, I know that I appreciate it and that Nonnie (Carol) would too.

  4. Carol was a wonderful friend to Debbie and I. Carol will be remembered for her friendship,grace and beauty. Though we have not seen our Boulder friends for a number of years we will carry her memory in our hearts until we all meet again.
