    To the Gauthier and Drinkwater family, so so sorry to hear of Carols passing. We spent many days as kids playing and she never lost her sweet personality. She was one of the nicest people I have known. May she rest easy until you meet again. God Bless. Barbara Matecko

    Carol was one of the loveliest people I have ever been privileged to know and call my friend. Her beautiful smile will be deeply missed by those of us who knew and loved her here in our Maple Leaf Community in Florida. She was, for me personally, one of my strongest spiritual supports during my cancer diagnosis and surgery. I wish I could hug her one more time. She is now with the Lord Who she loved and honored with all her heart.

    I can only imagine the giant hole left in her family's life by Carol's absence. We rejoice that she is where she most wanted to be. In the arms of her dear Jesus. But we mourn the loss of such a faithful warrior in the faith, and such a sweet and thoughtful friend. Her strong faith and unceasing prayer will always be an example to me. Thank you, Carol, for all the years of prayer you poured out on my behalf. I know you heard the words "well done, my good and faithful servant." See you one day before the throne. Love, Jennie

    Carol was such a wonderful, godly woman and prayer warrior! Our whole family has known her for years. She was so supportive and sweet every time we saw her. We are so sorry to see her go but are relieved she is not in pain anymore. Can't wait to reunite in heaven! The Beausoleil family
