A small tribute to a loving stubborn Polock.

Auntie Carol (that is how I always referred to her) was a true friend that you could confide your deepest secrets to and know that she would never share them with anyone else.

Auntie Carol was not monetarily rich, but she was rich with love and compassion for those she cared about. You could talk to her about anything, she would listen, shake her head, then give you her unabridged opinion. Sometimes, you got a slap of reality. There wasn’t “Oh you poor thing”, instead it was “PUT on your big girl panties and deal with it”. She would have suggestions to help you, but if it was pity you wanted, you came to the wrong place. She was a straight shooter, truthful, loving, strong and truly concerned with those she loved.

Ever year from 1972 until 2018, I would receive a birthday postcard from her. She never forgot to make my day special. I know some people would say “Oh Boy a postcard”, but to me it was a birthday wish filled with love and friendship.

Well my friend, you are now with family and friends that passed before you. I hope in the true BEYER tradition you party hardy. Laugh, dance and sing and remember, we will join you some day. Rest well my friend knowing you are loved and missed and will never be forgotten.

Love to you and condolences and love to your family,

Kae Perez

I am still in disbelief. I've lost someone that no words can even cover. She was my mentor, my hero, my confidant. She was one of the smartest people I know, full of wisdom, full of talent, full of wit, and so hard-headed that I don't think there is a word yet that has been created. She taught me about to care about social issues like recycling, not giving my business to places that went against beliefs. She was quite the handywoman that could fix just about anything around the house. She taught me and instilled within pride in being Polish. Her fridge was full of family pictures, her stand against Gaddafi (I believe it was), and a yarn canvas that stated, "Daj mi buzi". When Dad died, even though I was 24, she held me on her lap and rocked me to let me grieve and remind me that I'm still family when, at the time, I felt lost because the one person that tied me to the bunch was no longer around. Now, I find myself lost again...lost that the person I turned to for everything is no longer available to me. Even though I could go on and on, I will end this on a positive note. Dupa, dupa, dupa-dee-do....
