    Dear Family Members,

    I served as Carol’s mentor and dissertation chair at Fielding. I loved talking with her and supporting her research with experts all over the world about the future of education. I will miss her very, very much. Please accept my deepest sympathies at this very sad time.

    oh, please. Someone say this is not true. I am in shock. I have been communicating with Carol, my dear friend weeks before, discussing our data collection. We are both doctoral students. I wondered why she hadn’t reply to my messages. Oh, my goodness. I can’t believe this!
    She shared many stories. Enjoyed her horses, family and projects. We were both completing our data collection for our doctoral dissertation. I pray that Fielding University will still award her PhD. degree.
    Our peace and prayers to all of you.
    Prayers for you Carol, my dear friend, as you travel that long journey. May our Creator welcome you.
