Messages of Condolence

  1. I am so very sorry to hear of Carole’s passing. I was a nurse for both her and Dwight during their rehab stay’s at Mount Alverna Village. I will absolutely miss her incredible sense of humor and teasing her constantly about how much better Holy Name is than Padua 🙂 She told me she was going to give me a brown and orange blanket to keep for everyone to see! She was an incredible lady and I will miss her dearly. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. God bless

  2. So sorry to hear Carol passed away. I was a secretary at Delta Air Lines while Carol was Station Manager of Comair. She was a wonderful person with a great personality. Her quick sense of humor kept us all smiling. Carol gave me a handmade Christmas ornament that I put on the tree every year and think of her. It is a privilege to have known her. You (her family) have my deepest sympathy and prayers.

  3. Well God got a good one ! Anyone who knew Carol has treasured memories of good times and lots of laughs. She was loved. Our sincere sympathy on your loss.

  4. Mrs. Cohagan was like a mom to me during the ’86-’87 hockey season/school year. She was also my taxi to school my freshman year…man the patience she had sitting in my driveway as I ran through the house still getting ready in the mornings. She always cared for me like I was her own son. Rest in peace, Mrs. Cohagan, you’ll always be remembered as a Mom to me.

  5. Our deepest regrets to all the family in your Wonderful Mothers passing.She and I would hug each other every time she saw me at the airport.She will not be forgoten by me. xoxo. Hugh.Mary andfamily.

  6. For Amy, David, Perry and all your families:

    Charlie and I are truly sorry that you no longer have Carol physically here to “give you her opinions” as much as she did. BUT remember this – she will always be with you in spirit and firm belief. Carol was a delightful, caring and special person and Mother for sure and we are honored to have known her and shared many years with her and your family. Just carry on as your Mom would have you do and all will be fine.

    Diane and Charlie King
