So sorry to hear, but happy that Carol will be rejoining Howard in Heaven. She was a sweet and funny lady! I loved her laugh, which in my memories… She was always saying funny things and laughing. She will be missed greatly! Sending thoughts and prayers to your family through this very sad and difficult time.
