Death is like the sailing of a ship. The watcher on the seashore sees her spread her white sails to the morning breeze and start for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. We stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other. Someone says, "There--she’s gone," and we find ourselves asking, "Gone where?" "Gone from my sight--That’s all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the places of destination." Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, "There--she’s gone," there come other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "There she comes" And so it is when one passes from this life into the great beyond.

So sad to hear about Carol. We worked together in AIHL for several years and I have fond memories of the good old days working for the lab. After I left Public Health, we kept in touch and she would let me know when someone passed from one of the labs. I will always remember her, she was a beautiful person.

To Carol's family Please know that there were many of us who were touched by her dynamic, warm, and caring personality. While Carol and I never worked together, my late husband, Lou Pierce, who worked with Carol for many years always spoke so warmly about her. After his death in 2017 she continued communicating with me and just a few weeks ago we had an unusually long telephone conversation. In that conversation, we each shared many of our thoughts about our health challenges, and life in general. It was so ironic because we talked like we had never done before. I will truly miss those conversations in which she kept me updated on "the happenings" of all co workers of their era. RIP Carol!

I’m sad to learn the passing of Carol. We both worked in Berkeley and she was very kind and patiently answered many questions from me because I was new. She was a good friend. She brought good luck with her on the girls trip to LV. Such fun it was. Fond memory. May Carol Rest In Peace

Carol was a good friend and someone who cared deeply about other people. I'll miss her many phone calls, always containing updates on the people we worked with. When she told me that she did 10 miles a day on her exercise bike, I bought one for myself. Although I'll never make 10 miles a day I'll always thank Carol for her inspiration. When I was ill, Carol made take-home dinners for me! I called her "My Food Angel." I'll miss you, Carol.

Carol was a true gem. She was my first secretary at the California Department of Health, but in reality she was more like family. She will be missed sorely as she and I communicated regularly long after our work relationship ended. In many ways, Carol changed the direction of my life and all in good ways. Thank you Carol. I miss you.

Dear Carol, So sad you are gone. You were the soul of the Public Health Lab for so many years, the person we went to when we wanted to get something done in our Byzantine State Public Health bureaucracy. And you were so much more. You trained many of us. You were the glue that kept our Lab office social circle under reasonable control. And such a delightful sense of humor. As the social secretary, you knew all the gossip about all of us boys and girls. Especially the good and bad ones. And we told you everything, almost. I will miss you at lab Christmas parties since we both retired. But I will laugh out loud about the good old days with you in the labs. And I will honor your memory. Peter
