I just read this news belatedly. I'm so sorry for her family. When I was still a newbie at BPL many years ago Carole and I were partnered on a months-long, system-wide project. She was wonderful to work with and so much fun. She was truly professional and offered such good advice when I was new and eager.

Carole, I couldn't believe when I read of your passing that it was real. I was just checking in on Facebook and thought that everything was okay, until I looked through the "grapevine" and I am beyond shocked. You are love, Carole. I remember when I first started at Ulmer that the first thing I should do with my paycheck is blow it. It was the best advice I received to date and whenever I moved up, I blew my check as a reminder that I deserved it. I am thankful that we were able to meet. That we were able to talk and have our heart to heart. I am going to miss you, Carole. I will always love you and pray for you. You are in a good place now with the Lord above and I pray for comfort for those who've been left behind. I love you, Carole.

I don't have the words to express how I am feeling. It is too painful. You were one of the few people who understood me. You use to say to me, think before you speak and don't get Facebook. Your mouth will get you into trouble. Which it seems always did. I will always think fondly of you. Until we meat again my friend.
