I've known Carol for as long as I can remember. My father is a long time customer of a local pub (Durham Arms) that Carol frequented.

My father always brought me by for fish and chips since I was very young and could barely walk. Some of my earliest and favorite memories are with Carol and George, sharing a plate of fish and chips and laughing away.

I still have the guitar pick George gave me, as well as the Teddy Bear wearing a leafs jersey, and the Maple Leafs blanket that Carol made for me, both with my name on it. I still remember the incredible feeling when she gifted those to me, the fact that someone went out of their way and put so much time and love into such a beautiful, thoughtful gift, it really blew me away. I still have these items and cherish them to this day. That bear has had a permanent spot on my dresser for 10-15 years, and it always will.

I will never forget Carol and will tell these stories forever, I'm so sorry for the family's loss, but I thought it'd be nice to share how much of an impact she made on me. I will miss sharing my plate of fish and chips with her as we laugh about silly stories. Rest in Peace, Carol, you will be greatly missed.
