Very saddened to hear of Carol´s passing. She was a dear friend of my mother and family. Always remember her passion for Felix and Papparazzi her cats, amazing artistry skills and even love for the tortoise family that I take care of! She is home with the Lord now, hopefully painting more amazing pictures of ships at sea alongside her cats!
