From Nico~

Today is one of the saddest days of my life. I thank all of you for your condolences and prayers.
I am devastated to say the least
My heart is heavy the pain I feel I can not put into words. Carol was the best and it is hard imagining life without her. Many of you knew us when we first came on the scene and you know she was there with me all the time until her health got bad. I didn’t expect this it was sudden and blindsided me totally. I loved her she believed in me and I in her we were a team. My life is better because of her and it will never be the same without her in it. I know God has her in his arms. Maybe they needed a good manager up there. I was with her and I just knew she would be okay but she left for a procedure and I said I’ll be right here when they bring you back. She didn’t come back and I am hurting like I’ve not known before.
Thank you so much again for all the wonderful things you wrote and all the prayer. I appreciate you all and Carol would to.
Carol Ray RIP you will live in my heart and mind forever. I love you
