July 14, 2011, my twin sister passed away in New Bern, North Carolina. She was 65 years old. Carole had had diabetes for many years. She was on dialysis for about six month. She moved back to North Carolina to live with our niece, Karen Smitten. Carole had sold her house in Dayton, Nevada and moved back there. She added on to Karen's house. Which about double the size of the house. Carole had a very nice place to live. She had a family room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and a small dinning area.
Carole just had to pay for the added insurance and property tax, which came to $200.00. She had it very good I thought. Carole did not take care of her diabetes and she finally had a toe removed. Carole also fought with depression. If she took her medicine she was alright. I really don't know what Carole was thinking but I do know that she made life miserable for Karen. For all of our life, Carole and I really didn't get along and she was that way with Karen when she moved in with her. Before that Carole and Karen got along great. I think that Carole thought that Karen should do everything for her, which she ended up doing as Carole was house bound for the last two years of her life.
