I had the pleasure many times of interviewing Carol on the tv ministry I host and produce, Lumen Christi. Also did a series of interviews on the radio with her. She was awesome. A shared prophetic gift, we under stood and respected each other. She never refused to talk and pray with me no matter what the hour, since, I live in Michigan I found that level of selflessness so beautiful. I keep the message given through her to me from the Lord on my refrigerator. It will remain as a constant source of encouragement, and a little memorial to a great woman of
God, a humble servant, and a dear dear friend. I am richer for having known her. Sandra Timco -Host/Producer Lumen Christi Tv Ministry

God gave us a prophetess, a sister and a beacon of hope in Christ when He gave us Carol. I will remain enriched and blessed by the mutual bonds of affection for God and Our Lady. I will miss her humor, radiance, humility, gift of prayer, gentleness and zeal to win souls for Christ. Numerous signs, wonders, and gifts blessed our times together. She taught me that gifts are meant to be shared and lift up others. God grant eternal rest to your faithful servant/daughter Carol. Don is every bit a selfless friend to me and my family as his beloved wife. My deepest sympathy to the Ameche family. Carol will be sorely missed. Ciao Bella! Mary Kay Pignotti

I will continue to pray and try to imagine a world without her smile, her voice, and her heart filled with love. We must all feel like we were her best friend, thats who she was, a best friend to all Gods little ones. She was always there when I needed her, even when she was suffering more than I!
I THANK YOU CAROL . I love you! Thank you Don for sharing her with the remnant
