I just learned of Carol’s passing last night. She was so special to my family, especially my mother Helen Burleson. Carol you will never be forgotten. God bless your family and may they find peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Lisa, Chuck and family, I was so very sorry to learn of Carol’s passing. A few years ago before I moved from Ahoskie to Currituck Co, I ran into Carol in the little store in St John’s, hadn’t seen her since high school. Had no idea she lived right down the road from me! We had a good time talking and catching up. Carol was always so full of energy and so outgoing, I know she will be terribly missed by all who knew and loved her. Keeping all of you in my prayers.
