My mom was my first and best friend. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother. She was there for me no matter what. No problem too big for her to help with. The love my mother showed me will help me cherish every memory of her. Words cannot express how heartbroken I am to have lost you. I love you, Mama. – Raymond Cobb, Jr.
No one could’ve asked for a better second mother than Carol. She always loved me as her own and I feel so blessed for the relationship we had. I can remember many late nights where we stayed up talking about anything and everything. She was always an ear to listen when I needed advice and was the person I could talk to when I couldn’t talk to anyone else. We have shared so many special moments over the years. I am thankful for those memories that we will all cling to. She was a wonderful Nana to Audrey and Payton. The love they shared and the joy they brought each other was undeniable. She was a true treasure in our life, and we were not ready to let her go. We will miss her more than she could ever imagine. – Jessica Wynn
Carol was a sister that you could go to for advice, support, and love. When I was younger, she was the person to guide me and point me in the right direction. She was like a mother to me and I could count on her for anything. She will always be missed and loved by anyone who ever knew her. Carol and I had a special love that only few siblings experience. I love you Carol and I will never forget you. – Matthew Palefsky
