Carol ‘Nana’ Lopez was a jack of all trades. Carol was a fierce woman holding fast to her beliefs, defending those she loved, and never taking “no” for an answer. She dedicated her whole life to working and going above and beyond for her family. She never looked back and always pushed forward. Her dreams of sticking to her family, living on a ranch and now being back with her mother have come true. Her ambition will live in each of us. She will be missed dearly and will always be loved 'with a golden gate'.
