    I will always think of you as the sweet, smiling teenager I met so long ago. You always made us laugh and you will be greatly missed by friends and family but you will never be forgotten. Karol, it was a privilege to have known you.

    Aunt Karol,
    You were one of the most coolest godmothers anyone could ask for. No matter where we went you always gave us a memory to talk and laugh about. You raised two the best cousins I could have asked for, you were an amazing mother to them and always drove them to friends houses, the mall, or any place they wanted to go. I remember all of those summers we had in the pools at your old houses, and all the great barbeques and partys for the holidays. I even remember that time that everyone on elike uncle kevin, chris, me, my mom and some other people all went into your basment because we had a tornado watch and we felt safer at your house lol. But my favorite memory is when Rupert (old dog) started to attack my mom and Jen, Amanda, Me, and you all sat their laughing hysterical you will be missed dearly I love you so much

    Dear Karol,
    May you finally find the rest you have sought for so long in heaven with God and with Nee Nee and Grampa. I will always remember you and funny moments we shared like at my wedding when you lept from one side of the dance floor to the other to catch the bouquet! And then, you really were the next one to get married. I will also remember how happy you were the last time we spoke... you told me how good Tommy and the girls were to you and how much they loved you. RIP, Karol. I love you, Cuz. For all who may be reading this...please help me in my fight against MS for Karol at this website:

    So sad and heartbreaking for your entire family. You grew up to be so beautiful- I am sorry that I only knew you when you were the youngest of Margie's crew. I am Uncle Rocky and aunt sue's daughter so my memories of you are the AMAZING family picnics each year. My hope is for you to rest now and watch from above with so many of the Pirro clan. I am sure they were there to greet you and welcome you. Rest in Peace, Karol. Mary Frances

    To my baby cousin Karol who I will miss dearly, I am so sorry that we couldn’t see each other again in life, but we shall meet again later in the Heavens above. I will always remember our childhood together and the fun times we had at our houses and our neighbors. I missed you when I moved to AZ, but was glad we got to visit you a couple times in NY, yet sadly never in FL. May you be at peace with Nee Nee and Gramps and watch over all of us that loved you so much.
