Obituary for Carol Jean (Law) Adams

Carol, age 64 of Littleton, Colorado, a mother, grandma, daughter, cousin and friend went to be with her dad Ray,her mom Mable and niece Susie on April 26th, 2020. Carol is survived by her daughter Heather, her two grandsons and son Gregg.

Carol grew up in Englewood Co where she attended Maddox, Flood Jr. High and Englewood High school where she graduated from in 1974. After high school carol went on to work for Diners Club until she met the father of her kids and all though it was a tough marriage Carol did they best she could to raise her kids with honor, respect, and courage and to give them the best in life she could.

In 2005 Carol made the decision to take on the role of mom and dad to her then 16-year-old daughter Heather. Carol made sure to give Heather the gift of strength, resilience and courage reminding Heather everyday that no matter how tough a situation might be always remember you got this. Carol eventually got a job working for Disney as a in store merchandiser where she worked doing that for over 5 years until her health just would not allow it anymore.

Carol became a grandma for the first time in 2006 and again in 2009, it did not take much time at all for both her grandsons to become the stars of her show. Carol had a heart of gold and would help anyone if they were in need a value she got from her mom and made sure to instill in Heather. All the kids that met Carol called her mom and she accepted them as her own. Carol loved being around her friends and enjoyed her weekends with her longtime friend Teri singing Karaoke. During the final few months Carol enjoyed all the time her friends took to spend time with her at the nursing home, it brightened her days and made her fight harder. Unfortunately Carol gave into the long fight she had been putting up with and she went to be with her family knowing she would finally be at peace and out of so much pain she had been in for a very long time.

Although we miss her dearly, we know she is happier resting easy now. Carol’s final wish and hope was that her daughter would be OK and looked out for. Carol went knowing that her daughter and herself have more love from her friends and family that she could go rest easy knowing Heather still has many people she can lean on. Carol will be watching over all every day and smile down on us during or good times and wipe the tears from our eyes during the sad times and the grief.

Carol did not want anyone to be sad when it was her time to leave the earth, she only wanted everyone to remember the good times. Heather has set up a go fund me page to help her with Carol’s expenses that are still going to come in and to help with cost of having a celebration of life for Carol, date soon to follow after the pandemic.

Carol did not go alone that day she took a little piece of everyone she met with her.

"What do you say and do?"
By Heather

What do you say to the women that picked you up whenever you would fall?
I would hold her hand a little longer and not have wished to grow up faster
What do you say to the women who always wiped away the tears and mended your broke heart?
I would hold on to her hugs a little tighter and smile with her more.
What do you say when the women that made you the person you are today is taken away?
I would tell her I loved her more spent more time with her and made sure she knows how much I loved her
And how thankful I was that I was given her as my mom
What do you say to the women who was always there?
I would tell her that I am sorry you suffered so long, and I wish I could have taken even half her pain and carried it for her the way she always carried me.
I would tell her I am sorry for every single time I made you cry or mad and for thinking we always had more time.
What do you do when you lost more then just your mom but your best friend?
I will do everything to make her proud and fulfill every dream and hope she ever had for me because while it will not bring her back, I can still make her proud to say that is my daughter down there.
She wouldn’t want me to be sad she would want me to remember the good and to hold on to the future and to let go of the past. That’s what you do for the women who made you the strong resilient women you are today.
You can rest mom and leave the worries to me now I got this! Although I miss you every day and there is emptiness inside my chest and heart, I know you are never far away.
