I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Carol when I married into the Murphy family Carol always treated me like one of her own, even after divorce she always treated me like I was still part of the family. I had many great times with Carol and AJ and I will always cherish them. Carol will be missed greatly but comfort lies in knowing she is reunited with her parents, AJ and other family members. Rest in peace Carol, love and will certainly miss you. Meg
