    Ooh Carol, I never dreamed this day would come. I’m so sorry you had to endure so much through your life. If I could take this all away and have you here with us and make you all better, I would do anything for that. I know you are no longer in pain or suffering so. My heart aches for you and Mom. There’s so much I need to talk to you about. I just need you. Fly high beautiful one. Daddy, Gregory and Susan and our Lord have engulfed you in their loving arms to welcome you home. I just miss you and love you so much. I will forever.

    Oh Carol, I honestly thought you’d pull through this and be back to school come August. I still can’t believe you’re gone! You didn’t deserve this and were much too young. You worked so hard all your life, leaving from one job to go to another, and always, ALWAYS working yet finding time for your doggie and horses. And you loved your mom so much. I can only imagine how hard this is on her as the 2 of you were so close. Keerstyn had tears when I told her, you and Karen were always so nice to her. It’s just not going to be the same at school anymore. God Bless you, and God be with your family as well. I’ll miss you…

    June 8: Just learned here on the Skradski website this evening of your loss of Carol. So sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one, and she will be missed so much.
    I think she had also worked at Elmer’s deli?
    It was nice to enjoy horses with her! Once rode with her when she was training one of her young horses to be ridden. She used to let me ride her white horse, Sam, a lot at my aunt Bernice’s.
    It does help to know that others care, so wanted to express sympathy & share these memories of your dear Carol.

    Oh Carol how I miss you and still look for you to come walking in to the barn. The critters miss you especially Ted who loved you dearly. I’m sorry you had to suffer so. May you R.I.P and ride your beloved horses in the sky that have gone on before you
