Dear Anthony and family, I am so sorry to hear of your Nanís passing. Carol loved you so much and was so proud of all your accomplishments. I met your grandmother over 30 years ago while commuting into Boston from Whitman. She always put others before herself. The Bentley Family sends their condolences. Remember Anthony you are her legacy.❤️

Carole was my roommate for several weeks at Life Care Littleton. She made the experience more bearable, my illness less all-encompassing. I went back to visit her a few times this fall and winter and enjoyed seeing her, although she was failing some. I am so grateful that Carole was there for me when I was so needy and I hope that I was able to do the same for her. I will miss her.

It was a privilege and joy to get to know Carole during her residence here on South St., Waltham during the earlier part of 2017. She loved being in the common living room of our building and was a perceptive and caring friend. She had many interesting life experiences to share! I was also able to continue phone conversations with her after she had gone to Littleton. She was a dear lady who was well-koved by the residents in our building. We all send condolences to her family and trust that the positive memories of her life will help to provide comfort at this time.
