Dear Daniel and family,
Carolyn and I worked at South Carroll HIgh School in the FACS Department together for 4 years. She was my mentor teacher for Foods and Financial Literacy when I came to South Carroll in 2003. While we worked together, she helped me battle breast cancer when I first arrived sharing all of her resources with me to make things easier. During that time I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and she gave me several angels to watch over me too. After her retirement in 2007 she continued to volunteer for the SC Project Linus Club for which I am the advisor. Every Tuesday after school she came to cut fleece and sew on labels even while she was battling cancer, if she was feeling up to it. May times she would bring a bag of quilts she had sewn on her machine and embroided to add to the blanket count for South Carroll. Her goal was to make and donate 100 blankets to Project Linus and she reached just short of this goal. During her time volunteering she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and then the cancer and I was diagnosed with breast cancer again. Our conversations started with talking about our families and quickly turned into sharing of the trials and tribulations we were each dealing with. I can't tell you how much I looked forward to our Tuesdays together and supporting each other through life. We were our own support group of two. I met your father, Bill, when my husband wanted to build a barn on our property and Carolyn invited us over the see Bill's pole building. Thanks to your father, we now have one just like his. Carolyn was my colleague and mentor but more importantly she was my friend. I will miss her everyday and especially when I am cutting fleece and making blankets for Project Linus. Rest in Peace now, Carolyn, free from pain. Once a Cavalier, Always a Cavalier.
With Sympathy,
Carmela Fiora
