Carolina was a strong and loving daughter, sister, aunt and friend who never turned her back on someone in need. She had a big and beautiful heart that went well with her kind soul. Everyone who got to know her was able to see what a great person she was.  Her words of wisdom and courage helped so many people, and her smile always brightened everyone’s day.
