W have been neighbors for 60 years and have enjoyed .many years of friendship. We treasure your beautiful photos on cardsyou made, your flower gardens, meeting your British pen pal, Tuye'ts stay with your family after her heart surgery, meeting the Vinal children, exchanging gifts at Christmas and you sending over beef stew when we arrived home from a trip late in the day. . You have always been a generous person in caring for your patients, their families, your neighbors and your friends. Rest in Peace.

Brian,My deepest Sympathy to you and your family. I met Carol at MGH and enjoyed her wisdom and sense of humor. Once she retired we would lunch together periodically and I always enjoyed her stories about your family, and the "military girls" she took under her wing. She made the most beautiful cards for me from her photos and I sent them to my patients often and they would always call and tell me how much they loved the beautiful cards. I will forever cherish the brief friendship we had and remember her always. May God bless you and your family with many happy memories of her time with us.

This may be the last note that I will write you but rest assured, our memories together will last forever.
I really have no words to express the sadness and grief that comes with the loss of such a wonderful person.
From the Goombay Summers in the Bahamas to the trips overseas, the good times the four of us spent together have helped to shape the person I have become. Walking the beaches in Hawaii and Sanibel Island brought us a lifetime of memories that no one can take away. It is all these good times that the Vinal family had with you, Brian and Helen that will help us through this time of terrible loss.
We all know that Mama Daley is there to greet you with open arms and a Lipton Cup of Soup.

Rest easy my friend, you will be missed forever but you will never be forgotten!
Until we meet again ...

I was so sorry to hear about Carol. I have many fond memories of the conversations we would have while at the Good Samaritan Cancer Center. Carol and I would keep in touch from time to time via email and she has sent me so many of her beautiful cards made from the amazing photographs she took. I thought of her and will think of her every time I send a note to someone with her cards. It was a pleasure knowing you both.

My Condolences.

God bless you, Carol. I know you and Helen are in heaven gathering a group of ladies to make crafts! I need you both to be careful with those hot glue guns. Rest In Peace my friend.
