Oh Carol, my heart is broke i really cant believe you have gone it just doesn't seem real at all, im gonna miss our chats and laughs your were one of the most loving, caring, funny & kind hearted people i ever got to meet & i was blessed to have met someone like you. I remeber at christmas when grandma didnt like her tree where it was but she didnt want to change it incase grandad started moaning but us girls together decided to move it while grandad and david was at the pub haha funniest part was how he didnt even notice when they came home. Well its your funeral on thursday & oh Carol its going to be one horrible day saying goodbye to you but i know you will have the BEST send off you really do deserve, i wish i could take your place just to bring my grandma her very best friend back & everyone else tbh but i know you will always be there with each and every one of us in spirit. Your memories will forever live on with us & youll always have a place in my heart Carol. You really didnt deserve to go so soon, each and every day you will be sadly missed, r.i.p Carol untill we meet again

Carol, I still can’t believe you are gone. You were such a prominent part of the family, always there to help and offer advice. I feel privileged to have met you. I’ll never forget our long chats, putting the world and family to rights. You were so kind and understanding and always there for everyone. Rest in peace my lovely x x

Grief I’ve learned is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat and in the hollow part of your chest. Grief is love with nowhere to go. Rest in peace my lovely friend xx

Carol, what can I say. I’ve known you since I was 5, you were my second mum and Ju’s nana.
You took me in when I was a teenager and I’ve always been a part of your family.
Over the years we haven’t seen each other as often, but we would catch up over the phone like it was just yesterday.
I will
Never forget the conversations we’ve had, the laughs, the tears and the advice.
Now your gone I realise just how missed you are and want to call you each day.
I have some special memories I’ll never forget and you will be forever in my heart.
Love Helen and Ju x

Carol, amazing heart, soul and person who I am proud to say I known. Someone who shown me no matter what love, care and guidance means so much more. She made me laugh so many times, even when she was telling me off for swearing or telling me a story she 100% always put a smile on my face. I have grown up knowing carol, and seen the love see gives to everyone around her. She turned everything into a positive, I for one am still shocked that she won't be sat in her chat having a gossip and being so straight talking. Which I admired so much about her. I have been to carol for advise over the years and always she has been straight with me and will never forget it. I miss you and I thank you with all my heart for the advise and being there over the years, I will never forget you xxx

When we was 11 Steph and I became best friends, i would stay over at Stephs every day. Carol made me feel like i was one of her own she would feed me, stick up for me and comfort me (mainly when me and steph fell out because she made me do her chores haha). All the kids had chores to do including me but we all done them. There was many fun times had in the house. Carol had lots of love to give and she certainly gave it this is why she was loved by so many. She will be missed greatly but her spirit will live on in all her family. Sleep tight Carol xx

My beautiful Mum. I know people always say that their mum is the best, but you were the absolute best. Your family meant the absolute world to you, that I’m certain of. Thank you for all the memories and for just being you. I miss you beyond belief. I just wish I could bring you back. I truly never learned what the words I miss you were until I needed you and you weren’t there. I have lost count at the amount of times I’ve gone to call you to ask for your advice or to tell you about a tv programme to watch or with something I’m dying to tell you. Does it get easier? I loved you like there was no tomorrow, and then one day there wasn’t.
I hope you’re looking down and see me, and I hope you’re proud of everything I do. Thank you for giving me life and for raising me with morals and respect. I’ll be forever grateful for that. All that I am and hope to be I owe to you, Mum.
I love and miss you so, so much. xx

For anyone who ever met my mum, you will know that her love and kindness was given unconditionally to anyone she met.
I will never need to struggle to think of a moment when you were there for me or anyone who needed you. You were my rock, my world, my best friend and unfortunately for you as you never put your phone on silent, you were also there at 2am when I 0ccasionally may have called for someone to speak to. Not quite yet figured out how I will ever fill the hole I have in my life, I do feel sorry for Steph, she has already jumped up 6 places on my phone to be the 3rd most called number. I will never stop thinking about you mum. I know you will be watching over all of us, and am sure u have already had a few goes at my dad for some reason. Love you x x x

You was the best mum u brought all 6 of us up with unconditional love we not only loved you we respected you through the good bad hard and happy times as if that wasn’t enough you spread that love to our friends and so many other people I will never forget how happy you was when I told u about tai u was at the scans birth and with me every step of her life you taught me how to be a mum and if taia grows up and loves me half as much as I love you my job as a parent is done ❤️
You was more than a mum my best friend confident and go to with every part of my life no words can express how much I miss you every second of every day until we meet again

When me and Mikki got together, we could not have asked for any more love and support. Carol helped us to have the privacy we needed to nurture our love. Spending time with Carol I soon saw the power of family love, meeting all Mikki’s brothers and sisters, with Carol in charge, it was soon obvious how everyone pulled together.
Me and Mik soon lived together in the caravan and then shared a room in Carol and David’s home till we got our own house.
Any rules or decisions had to go by Carol lol , Mik called her 20+ times a day so we all knew what the latest ‘news’ was in the family circle.
Personally, I will miss her frankness, her devotion to her family, her generosity, her magnetism to others , her stories, her presence and her love,; even though she often didn’t feel the best with her health. Miss you lots x x
