    My thoughts and prayers go out to Jerry and the family. Carol was my boss at one time. Then turned into a dear friend of mine. I will miss her very much.

    I worked with Carol at Equipalife as a board member for many years.
    She was a true advocate for people with disabilities. We helped many
    in need of medical equipment, our goal was never to say no.
    She will be missed by many. I spoke with her maybe a month ago…
    she asked that I keep her in my prayers. That was never a problem and I
    will continue. My deepest sympathy to Jerry and her family.

    So sorry to hear about Carol. I smile when I hear her name. We knew each other in Junior high school. Our gym lockers were always next to each other…Fury; Fyock…and our birthdays were one day apart, hers July 26th, mine the 27th. We always had a bond! My sympathy to your family. Sounds like she made a great contribution to those who needed help!

    I am so sad to hear of Carol’s passing. We worked and lived together many years ago. I will always be grateful for what she taught me about working with people with disabilities. She was a true advocate. She had the best smile. My sympathy.
