For 39 years, the world has benefitted from Carol’s amazing ways. And today, on her birthday, I’ve (Anna) got to publicly state: Carol, you’re the best!

Carol has made many lives (especially mine!) more joyful, peaceful, meaningful, organized, and simply better. Nearly every day I’m compelled to say, “How does she do it?” while watching her as a mom, wife, professor, researcher, colleague, co-author, friend, athlete, seamstress, card designer, photographer, and cookie baker! Who else can successfully fulfill all of these roles with such grace and style? Carol, everyone would agree, you’re something else. Enjoy your birthday!
