During the summers, Carol would often take Andrea and Brandon back to her hometown in Hanalei, Kauai.

There isn’t a life that Carol hasn’t touched or made an impact on. Carol was the sweetest and most patient person, with a gentle soul. She was soft-spoken and yet strong and was the rock of the family. Her heart was filled with compassion, as is shown through her deep love of her family, especially her 3 grandsons. She will always be remembered for her gentle soul, kind smile and warm personality. Aloha Carol!
