    To the Gary family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Carol was a hoot. Funny, funny, funny. Said what she thought and defended it. She was a good friend. A good person. A hard worker. I always loved to hear her stories and adventures.. I hope you are able to recall your positive memories and her her laugh now. God bless you all. She is watching over you now.

    To Carol’s Family, My condolences to everyone Carol held meaningful in her life. I’m so sorry for your loss. Carol was a beautiful person. I have known her for years ever since the two of us worked together at CountryMax. Carol was witty, funny and opinionated! She drove me nuts at times while in the same instance made me laugh. We both enjoyed sharing stories about traveling. I will miss her. Rest in Peace Carol Gary and may heaven have an job opening at an animal shelter for you.

    She was funny, fierce, loyal friend, mama bear, and always there when we needed her. There will forever be a hole in our hearts.

    Carol was the funniest and most outrageous woman I’ve known. She was totally uninhibited, and her art reflected that. What a laugh! What an animal lover! What an amazing friend.! The world is less beautiful, without Carol. Love you, girl!

    To Carol: Thanks for the memories, Carol. I’ll take good care of Percy. I must say, though, you’re leaving a great big hole in my life. I love you, my friend.
    To Kelcey: You’re bereft of a Mom, and I’m bereft of a son. I will gladly take you in my arms any time you need.

    Carol’s family, My deepest and sincere condolences go out to all of you. Carol and I worked together for a few years and she was my little “spit fire”, those will be the memories I will cherish!! I feel as though I know all of you just through the conversations we shared about our families. Just know, she was surrounded by lots of friends that had the privilege to know her. Prayers to all of you!!

    Dear Carol, like many others, if I knew you were leaving us, I surely would have tried to spend much more quality time with you. I will miss you always and especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve dinners. I hope Kelsey and Naomi will be comforted to know how very proud you were of them and how much you loved them and their pets. Your travels to Ireland with Carly and visits to brother Michael in the Hampton’s were some of your happiest experiences in retirement. If it’s possible for you to know anything about the people you left behind, know this, we love and miss you tons and will always hold a special place in our hearts just for wonderful You. Rest easy Carol. I hope to see you again when I too cross that rainbow bridge.

    Kelcey and Carly I only knew Clarol for a couple of years but she always talked to you lovingly. She was a very strong woman who tried not to show her weak side. I’m so sorry for your loss and I’m sorry that I didn’t k ow until tonight.

    My deepest condolences to the Gary family. I met Carol years ago when we worked together at the Henrietta Country Max. She was always in a glass half full kind of mood and always had something to talk about. Her sense of humor and our love for animals brought us together as friends outside of work. Even years after we no longer worked together she would be always check up on me and my family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Rest easy my friend

  17. MICHAEL MCGARRY on October 14, 2020 at 8:13 am

    I am truly heartbroken. i will miss Carol every day for the rest of my life. Never was there a more caring, loving, woman. I will miss our phone calls to each other, some for five minutes, some for over an hour. I will miss her laugh, mostly I will miss her being a part of my life. There is a large part of my soul missing, that may never heal. My deepest heartfelt condolences for her family, and many friends.

    I just learned of Carol’s passing. We became friends through Neutral Ground, and among other things, went hiking together. She gave my daughters some beautiful dolls one Christmas. I wish you were here to talk to Carol.. You would be a great comfort to me at this point in my life. I Miss You. Phil
