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

I am dedicating today's Thankful Thursday post to Carole Provenzale by reposting this lovely tribute to her written by her beautiful daughter Laura.  I got to know Carole by visiting her blog and by her thoughtful and kind comments to my posts.  Carole commented on my mother's day post on 5/18, the very morning she passed away.  It's my regret that while I always meant to pick up the phone and call and chat with Carole, that life was so busy and I've missed the opportunity.  My thoughts are with Carole's children and family.  She was a bright light and a kind and warm woman.  She will be missed.  Please visit the original blog and comment there.  Carole, we miss you already.

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 heard the shocking news this morning.  I cannot believe she is gone.  For over two years she has inspired and encouraged me.

As I read all through the comments on AR and FB I was amazed at the number of people she touched.  What a beautiful legacy.

Hi Susan...Carole touched us deeply.  I had no idea that I would feel this lose so profoundly.  It is amazing how we affect one another.

You, take care!

Kate, I saw it first on your post.  I thought, how nice, Carole must have gotten an award.  What a sad shock. Such a sweet lady.  I am kicking myself that I never got up there or picked up the phone.  Every time I think of it, my eyes well up.  So sad.

Susan,

This tragedy should remind us to make sure we let the people we love know it every day.

Thank you for re-posting this Susan for others who may not have seen Laura's announcement.  I am at a loss for words.  Carole was a classy, generous, and selflessless individual who will be dearly missed!

I didn't know that Carole commented on your Mother's Day blog. I'm off to read what she wrote. I loved that special graceful lady.

Wow...this was such a shock! I met her here in the past when she asked her daughter to subscribe to my blog which I thought was very nice. She leaves behind a wonderful family which speaks volumes about her!

Carole was an absolute angel in my book and I know the angels out there. I am glad I even told her so in her lifetime. She will be missed big time.

I am so sorry to read about the loss of Carole, but I have to think also how blessed we all are by the friends we have all made on AR and the knowledge that we have all shared with each other.
