    My deepest condolences. I knew Carole through her work at Columbus Housing. She was a mentor and friend in my life when life took me sideways. She would drop in to see me at my job with The Salvation Army and we would collaborate to help those in her community who needed help. I will miss her.

    My deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends of Carole. I was fortunate enough to meet Carole as one of the outgoing Rotary students from Kelowna. I spent a wonderful year in Argentina in 2011/2012 due to her efforts and the efforts of her fellow Rotarians. She will be missed by her all of her exchange student family.

    Paul and family -
    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I am a Rotarian, though not in the same club as Carole, but Carole and I spoke often and our paths crossed often over the years. We were host to 14 exchange students and our daughter went out on an exchange 6 years ago. Carol was a very special person - super "mom" to many! She will be missed and she certainly was loved.
