  1. It is with deepest sympathy that I send this message to Carol’s family. We were old friends and neighbors back in Upper Darby growing up. Carol was a gentle and dear friend. She always loved animals and gave them a good home. I will remember her as a beautiful soul that was filled with love for God’s creatures. Now, she is in heaven with Our Lord and her Mom and Dad. May she Rest In Peace with the angels.
