My beautiful “Auntie M” I have so many beautiful memories of you that I will treasure always you were a special aunt no one could ever take your place. You taught me how to dance you taught me a lot. I miss you so much I know you’re with Mom and Dad and Michael and of course, Uncle John. You will forever be in my heart. Your memories will never be forgotten, they will be treasured. I love you, Auntie M.
It breaks my heart to have to write on your obituary. I can remember you telling me, I have another 20 years before I leave this world! Oh, do I wish that was true, but God needed you before that and as we all know he takes only the best. I can remember “whispering in your ear, it’s okay to go as you were fighting too hard to stay with us. I had to let you know that Scoot (John) would be okay, and I would make sure of that!” I also remember. telling you that momma would be meeting you at the pearly gates when you got there. Aunt Carol we all had some wonderful memories and laughed our butts off while singing and dancing to “Hey Alexia” play this song. haha!! We wore her out playing those songs. This was just some short memories I had but there’s plenty more. I love you and miss you so much! It’s still doesn’t seem real to me. I know your happy being with John, your momma (Joyce and Donald) Daddy and your sweet little Michael. You will always be dearly missed here on earth! Please kiss, momma, daddy, Michael and Sherri for me. RIP my one and only number 1 AUNT!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!
My heart breaks for you all. Prayers are with you Scooter, Regina, Joshua, Susan and the entire family. Love you all . RIP Carol ❤️🙏🏼
You weren’t my real mom, but you always told me, I was the daughter you had always wanted. Not everyone is lucky enough to have more than 1 mother figure in their life. We have so many memories, so many laughs, we even shared a few tears together!! I miss hearing you sing along to, Conway Twitty, George Jones, and the list goes on. It’s just not the same here without you. But we know you are up there with Dad, my Momma, Joyce, Donald, Michael and Sherri. I promise you, no matter what happens, Scoot and Joshua will be taken care of!! I know they were your world, as they are mine. I am so grateful for you, and the rest of your family accepting me the way they have!! I love you Mom, always and forever!
