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

I met Carole Provenzale and her daughter, Laura Cerrano earlier this year at a Feng Shui seminar at the Farmingdale library. Carole contacted me back in October, 2009 when I first started blogging telling me she is from Long Island as well. We were both excited about how 2 bloggers from Long Island were on Activerain. We also have spoken on the phone numerous times for a few hours each time. The first time we spoke on the phone it was like we always knew each other. We just clicked.

Carole is going to be sorely missed by many. Our sympathes to Laura, Adam and to her family and friends.

We will never forget you Carole. Thank you for bringing Feng Shui into our lives. Thank you for the wonderful conversations we've had. You will forever live in our hearts.

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.

Jackie - I am stunned and very saddened to hear this news.  Carole subscribed to my blog as I did to hers.  I had no idea she was ill.  I will go over to and post to her children.

Jackie, I was stunned when I read this. One never knows. I didn't know that her health was poor...

Hi Leesa, Thanks. I wanted to reblog it to let others know she passed. I had no idea about her health either. We do not live far from each other and we spoke on the phone so many times. Everyone will miss her.

Jackie, thank you so much for posting this.  I had no idea that Carole was even ill and missed this post originally.  Her passing is a great loss to the Active Rain community.

Hi Jackie:

OMG...I had no idea!

Thank you for re-blogging Laura's post.

Hi Pat, You are welcome. I didn't know she was ill. She never let that show when we would speak on the phone. Her passing is a great loss. I miss her already.

Hi Toula, Wonderful and sweet sums it up about Carole. I'm going to her memorial service on Saturday.
