Honoring Carole Provenzale... a Mother a Friend a Mentor and so Much more...she was our Everything

 Feng Shui consultant Carole ProvenzaleCarole Provenzale

Dear Friends of Carole Provenzale,

My name is Laura Cerrano, Carole Provenzale's daughter, I had the pleasure of meeting some of you at RainCamp in New York City.  I want to honor my mother by thanking her for EVERYTHING that she has done for my brother Adam and I.  She has no idea the gift she has given us, being our mother, best friend, we could not have ask for a better mentor and mother. 

Unfortunately our mother passed yesterday 5/18/2010 around 6pm.  She was dealing with multiple health issues and finally she went in peace in her sleep with Adam and I by her bedside.  She always told me how much she loved the Activerain community and the hundreds of people she connected with who then became friends and she loved very much :)

I will do my best to continue my mother's work and up keep her blogs, business and continue to teach and inspire you with the teachings of Feng Shui.

I am sorry I didn't get a chance to meet her.  I bet she was a great person and she obviously was very loved by her family and friends.  I will say a prayer for her family.

What a shock.  She never indicated she was sick and kept up her blogging so eloquently.

Hi Craig, The moment I saw this, I immediately thought of you. I knew you would be heartbroken and I know that she will remain in your heart for years to come. She was one special lady and I am going to miss her terribly. What a dear, dear woman--she will be missed by many people here in the Rain.

Craig, Laura, and Adam,

I am so sorry to hear this news.  My deepest condolences to all of you.  I unfortunately was not blessed with the opportunity to meet Carole, but from one who has lost a parent... my heart goes out to you Laura and Adam.  Craig, I am glad that you were able to be her dear friend, and my heart goes out to you as well.  She sounds like a very special woman.  My father passed away May 23, 1999, and with that day drawing very near, you will all be on my mind and my prayers will be with you.

I had no idea that Carole was in poor health!  I had to re-read this several times and I am still not sure that I can grasp this.  I will miss her terribly as I considered her a tremendous friend within Active Rain - I never had the honor of meeting her in person.  My sincerest condolences to Adam and Laura.

Hi Craig:

I found out this morning...I had no idea she was ill.  I'm so sad to hear this, she was a sweet lady.

Just like Rich commented here, she was recently posted a comment on one of my posts also.

I will miss her....

My prayers go out to her family.
