I was really speechless when hearing of Carol's passing. She is now having her well deserved rest.

May she forever rest in peace. My thoughts are with her family at this time. May they find solice and peace in their hearts.

My deepest sympathy and prayers to Carole's family. She was a remarkable woman with an even more remarkable heart. We'll all miss her deeply.

I guess at some point I will have to pop in here so it might as well be now. The news of Mum's death has hit me hard. I just spent the last hour re reading our Skype conversations for the last six month's over and over. The bottom line is that I can not believe she is gone. I miss her so much already. I just wanted you all to know that she loved each and everyone of you - spoke of you all often. The last few months she had been sick quite a bit with colds and her legs and sometimes she would forget things or sound totally scattered...but over all she still cared about Gente and about all of us.

Thank you all for the lovely words about her - she hated to say goodbye to people - she would prefer to go off alone somewhere and cry because she was a wonderful and sensitive person - she would be honoured to know how you all felt because that is the type of person she really was. I can still feel her holding my hand as she always said she was when I needed her........and I need her now.

I don't know much about what is going on with the funeral arrangements or with her dog, Ciccio, although I have offered to take him if there is no one else. I will keep you all posted as I know more.

I'm still in shock from hearing about Carole's passing [thank you Cathy for letting me know since I've not been to Gente in a long while]...she was one of the most helpful ladies in here, always ready to lend a hand, give advice and make people laugh... She will be missed...Rest in peace miss Carole.

I hadn't dropped by Gente in about a week and was shocked and saddened to read the about Carole. My condolences to her family and circle of loved ones.

It was my pleasure to make Carole's acquaintance before I joined Gente. She had spied something I had posted on another website and felt the help/translation offered didn't really capture what was written so she contacted me privately and told me she would really like to translate the piece for me because she was touched by it. Of course, I jumped at her offer. As the emails passed between us, she gently pushed me to visit Gente. I joined and soon after that "the letters" came alive on this forum, thanks to Carole, Luca, and Livio. I am deeply indebted to Carole for practicing random acts of kindness and senseless beauty with such cheerfulness. I don't think she'd object to my characterization of Gente as the "Cheers" of genealogy forums--where everybody knows your name.

Rest in peace, Carole Sad

I'm so very sorry to hear this news. I didn't know Carole like most of you did, but she was always very patient, kind and helpful to me when I called upon her for help with my research. May God bless her and her family at this time.

Tom, I remember those letters well. Carole played an instrumental role in reuniting many of our families here, especially for those of us that relied on her translation skills. My heart os full of gratitude and emotion. Shortly, I want to post a picture of my reunited family, which I met this past week. My branch of the family had been separated from the Italian branch for over 100 years and Carole helped lead my heart back home. Rest in peace, my friend.

I didn't know Carole, except for what was posted on the Forum. She was very helpful to all and I learned a great deal from her posts. My fondest memory of Carole were the photos she posted about a year ago of her home in winter and of herself with other ladies in her village. What a privilege they were to view!

I believe a measure of a person's life is the response given by those who knew them in life. The comments made on this forum concerning Carole's passing, say it all. Requisat in pace Carole.

What lovely sentiments everyone has shared! Mum would be really happy to know just how much she was loved. Funeral arrangements are as follows:

Thursday, September 2, 2010 (That would have been her birthday)
10am in Shoreham by Sea Sussex
Caring Lady Funeral Directors
68 The High Street
Shoreham by Sea
West Sussex
BN435DB

0044 1273 464647

Are there any of our members who live in that area and can attend? If so thank you - I know she would be pleased. I am contacting the funeral director tomorrow for the rest of us to see what we can do - if anything so that we can also somehow "attend" virtually. I'm not sure this is possible but I am going to try. Meanwhile, we should now figure out about how we will send flowers and messages. Sergio is very appreciative of our support. Again, if there are any members from England reading this we could use your help and advice.

Still sad after hearing about Carole last night - she is in my mother's prayers and mine and her family.
All the while reading a book about the 'real' Alice (in Wonderland), I kept thinking "Have to ask Carole about all this."
