    Dear Dedricks,
    I am so very sorry to hear of Carol’s death. You’ve had more than your fair share of losses, each one hurts.

    I always looked up to Carol and was so jealous that Jo got to go places with her. I did get to play with her Ginny dolls instead, a rather wonderful consolation!

    I think of all you and all the times when our parents were young and raising a mass of kids! Fun times with great laughs for all of us.

    Again, so sorry for your loss…

    I am sorry for your loss. Carol gave me such strength, as I only hope to offer others in return.

    Carol was the best Mimi to all of her grandchildren. She lavished them with love and good times. She cared for them deeply and saw to their every need. She was there for every birthday and many sports practices always cheering them on and she was famous for cooking the best meals. From one Mimi to another, she will be missed.
