While waiting for my husband to finish his treatment Carol came in. She was upset because she hadn't been able to see her don on TV because she had to leave home for her appointment. Since the tv was on and it was the morning talk show I asked her was her son a newsman and she looked at me and said "No! My son is Jonny, Jon Bon Jovi. She so loved her family. She filled me in on the going on of her grand children and upcoming weddings. She was a delight to talk with. I met her again this time with John Sr. I am sorry for your loss. 🙏Prayers are offered for the whole family. She certainly seemed yo live life to the fullest.

Mrs B was very kind to me and really helped me out after I was mugged in Paris. The thieves got my passport, driver’s license, airline ticket home, and all my money. She immediately contacted her friend in the State Department. Needless to say, everything worked out. I will never forget how much she came through for me and all without even being asked. My deepest condolences to Jon and the entire family

Sending deepest of sympathy and condolences to the Bongiovi family. I met Carol in the mid 80s at our family owned florist in Fords. We shared lots of laughter and lunches. A lovely friendship developed, especially, between Catol and my parents . When the Fan Club came to fruition Carol was kind enough to give my daughter , who was about 6 at the time. all the bells and whistles. The button sits in a shadow box, along with the personal hand written letter she presented her with. Although we lost touch through the years I thought of that kind gesture the laughs and friendship we had . Such a lovely soul. RIP Carol.

May the memories of your dear Mom remain with you and your family forever. May she sleep in God's arms among the angels. I also lost my dear Mom 3 days before her 87th birthday. I was planning a party for her and asked her what kind of cake she wanted. She replied to me, "Coconut." That was the last time I saw her, 15 minutes at the hospital because of the covid virus. That's all the time we were allowed to see her and make our goodbyes. It hurt more than words could ever describe. I feel your pain and am sorry for your loss. God bless your family at this time. My prayers and condolences are with you all.

Sorry to hear about your loss! May the words found in (2 Cor 1:3) “ Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,+ the Father of tender mercies+ and the God of all comfort “ be true to you. Know that the promise the Bible gives of seeing our loved ones again (John 5:28,29) is what keeps us strong during difficult times. We can have the same confidence as Job did. He knew that Jehovah God would remember him and raise him to life again (Job 14:14,15). Much love to the family. jw.org

Dear family, loved ones and to you Jon, In these difficult times, I would like to extend my deepest condolences on the loss of your dear mother. Although our paths never crossed, I feel your pain deeply. I have been through a similar ordeal myself and I know how difficult it is to cope with the loss of a loved one. It is a heartbreaking ordeal, and everyone experiences it in their own way, but I know that grief can be overwhelming. May the precious memories you shared with your mother bring you comfort and remind you of the happy and loving times you shared together. In these difficult times, it is essential to support each other and remember that you are not alone in this ordeal. My thoughts are with you and I am sending you all my strength to overcome this difficult time. With my deepest condolences and sympathy, Caroline

My sincere sympathy for the Bongiovi family. I didn't know Carol personally, however we crossed each other's paths once in the late 1990's when I was a member of the fundraising committee for the Delaware County AIDS Network in Sharon Hill, Pa. I wrote the band a letter, explaining who we were and requested a donation for our Annual Recognition Awards Dinner and Silent Auction. Within weeks, we received a beautiful 'Bon Jovi' poster, autographed by the entire band, and a letter addressed to me from Carol, thanking us for our commitment in the fight against AIDS, and sharing that 'Bon Jovi' receives many requests for donations and that they are always happy to "give back" to the community. Carol also wished us much success with our fundraiser and even conveyed an interest in the outcome. Of all the donations received for our event, Carol was the only one that included a sincere and personable letter, which I have kept to this day. Rest in Peace Carol.

Kristin Macrina, Phila. PA left a message on July 11, 2024:
Dear Bongiovi Family, My heart aches for you all during this most difficult time. Mrs. B’s impact will be remembered by anyone who ever met her. I remember in 1987 a 13 year old me sent cash to pay for something from the ‘Secret Society’ as the fan club was called back then, and Mrs. B sent me back a handwritten letter letting me know she had received the payment and “to NEVER send cash through the mail again because it could have been easily taken” and to be more careful with my money! I told her that story later in the early 90s when I had the privilege of meeting her and she laughed and said “ Well I hope you listened and didn't do that again.” I assured her I hadn’t . She was a kind-hearted, amazing woman whose spirit shined so brightly! May her love and warmth continue to surround all of you. She has made such an incredible impact on so many people, and will never be forgotten.

(Brother) Lance K. Dow left a message on July 11, 2024:
First, my sincerest condolences to the entire Bongiovi family for your loss . . . as a long time BSWJBJ member I am so grateful for Mrs. B's personal and sincere touch she extended to the fans who could only ever dream of a chance meeting with our favorite band for life, Bon Jovi. There was a big show coming up in Atlantic City and a ticket-snafu occurred - I forget the unimportant details, but Mrs. B made a phone call to me personally and gave me the instructions to pay and receive the ticket I had expected over night. I could not believe she'd take the time to do that for me. From that moment I knew she was a special lady. While I thought I was only a "somebody", time and email communications later proved, I was special to her - as every single fan was. I went to the Atlantic City show and was shocked to see her in the lobby of the Borgata, sitting in front of a small throng of fans,, quietly....humorously telling a group of thrilled fans stories of a young Brother John! I kept my distance, overwhelmed and too intimidated to even say 'hey Mrs. B!' Thank You . . Well, fate was a friend that evening, as I made my exit at one point to the Borgata elevator and the doors opened . . . myself and a fellow lady-friend fan stepped in and I came face to face with this legendary lady. I froze. I said nothing. My friend, who of course, knew Mrs. B via BSWJBJ, immediately introduced me, 'Hey Mrs. B! This is Lance!!', she said. Mrs. B's face lit up, she threw her arms around me and said, "I Love You!'. Talk about being floored! I got to meet Hugh after the show, never the other guys sadly . . . but meeting Mrs. B was the greatest ~brush~with~greatness~ I ever had in my life. After I got home I thanked her via e-mail and, of course, she immediately responded. What follows, is the last communication I got from her on Christmas Day 2006, I still kept it all these years; Monday, December 25, 2006, 11:58 AM GOD BLESS YOU LANCE....HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS AND AN EVEN GREATER NEW YEAR!! LUV, MRS. B. Love and miss you Mrs. B - may you rest in sweet peace . . . ~ Always Brother Lance ~:O)

May God keep your family in peace during this sorrowful time.

Shana left a message on July 10, 2024:
As a longtime Bon Jovi fan, I’m forever grateful to Mrs. B for her immense role in Jon’s character, humility, philanthropy, passion and of course achieving his dream. A dream that has allowed him to put out so much good in a world where there seems to be a shortage of the same. Jon’s music has literally been the only constant in my life since childhood. Over the years, I have loved hearing Jon talk about his childhood and the unconditional support he received from his parents and especially his mom’s work with the fan club. It is undeniable that Mrs. B embodied everything that a loving mother should be. Without her influence and support, Bon Jovi fans might not have this music that touches our hearts and a role model in her son that is unmatched. She clearly cultivated a beautiful and wonderful family of outstanding humans and it shows every day. My sincere condolences to the entire Bongiovi family for their tremendous loss. May you all find comfort in each other as she lives on in your hearts.

Sending Carol's family my deepest condolences. I was previously the physical therapist at a residence where Carol stayed and met her lovely family. Carol was a strong, determined woman who was always focused on her family. I was inspired by her love of family, her humor, and her hospitality to us therapists even on the days that were challenging for her. She inspired me to be a stronger woman and a more creative therapist, and for that, I will always be grateful. I pray that she is at peace and wish her family strength to endure. I will never forget you, Carol!

I will never forget in March 2010 at Mohegan Sun I had floor tickets, I had brought my daughter, who was 8 at the time, and she was wearing a Mrs. Bon Jovi shirt I bought her. I looked to my right, in the walkway was Mrs. Bongiovi watching my daughter dance and sing every word to the songs , with a big smile on her face. Mrs. Bongiovi had a big smile watching her I will always remember that night, no words spoken, but, the smile said alot. May she Rest in peace 🙏

I am so sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She was an outgoing person who would chat about every day happenings. She was so proud of all her children and grandchildren! I knew her in the capacity of her pharmacist and helped me understand the importance of sticking close to family as I grew up in Old Bridge/Matawan and lived in Fair Haven. She really helped me deal with the loss of my mother. Also she never led on whom her famous son is, but was interested after Sandy what houses were across the river from me . I believe in her heart all her kids were famous. Prayers go out to the entire family at this difficult time.

I feel honored that I had the opportunity to get to know and love Mrs. Bongiovi as she hired me to work with her at her County Cache Florist business when I was a teenager. I was inspired by her creative abilities. She was so kind and sweet to me. I remember John would come by and visit his Mom, then leave to go practice. I always wanted to reconnect with her. She has been heavy on my heart for some time now. Over the years I tried to find a way to reach her. I am so sad I never got to speak with her again. I will forever miss her. She was talented, funny, kind-hearted, strong and such a beautiful woman. Prayers for comfort, peace, healing and strength.🙏🏻❤️🕊🌿✝️🛐

Mrs. Bongiovi, Although I didn't know you personally, having met your son once (well-mannered and personable at a SOUL game) and the fact you were a MARINE pretty much tells the tale. You are an American hero, not only to your country but to your family and friends as well. I salute you with military respect, ..................................... Slow Hand Salute.

I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of Carol. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and speak with her for a while a few years back as we were sitting next to each other at Olive Garden in South Fla. She was so very sweet, funny, outgoing, interesting and most importantly soooo PROUD of Jon and her whole family. She pulled out tons of photos of Jon to show me of him growing up. I had such a good time with her. She even agreed to let me call a friend who was a big fan of Jon's and they spoke on the phone! My friend had known some of her sons as it turned out. May she rest in peace. Such a beautiful lady. It was a very memorable moment for me. She will be missed.

As a 40+ year fan of Bon Jovi, I keep up with any and all news that pertains to Jon and the band. The loss of a parent is hard, even if they are older and lived a full life. I lost my dad 15 yrs ago, so i can feel the pain of the Bongiovi family. Sending my condolences to all family and friends on the loss of Jon's mother. May happy memories help you through this difficult time.

Carol called me about four years ago asking me if I would come to her home in Holmdel to discuss Home Care Services with her. I am the Case Manager of Visiting Angels in Red Bank, New Jersey. It was by far, one of the most WONDERFULl times that I have spent with a potential client. What a PERSONALITY...Carol, may you Rest in Eternal Peace and I am sure that you went out in a "Blaze of Glory"...God Bless your family during this very difficult time.

Caren Faisst-Darnae left a message on July 10, 2024:
My heart was truly broken to hear the news. Mrs. B was a shining light in so many lives. She was truly loving and a great woman I personally looked up to. She was like a mom to many of us. She ran a perfect fan club for so many years and truly cared for and formed good friendships with many of us. When my own mother, Linda, was going through her many cancer bouts, Mrs B would call her and spend hours on the phone with her. It truly made a difference to my mother and her spirit. I know when Mrs. B passed into the hands of God, she was greeted with many beloved family members, but I also believe my mom and many other people whose lives she touched, were waiting as well. My deep condolences and love go out to Mr B, Jon, Dorothea, Matt, Desiree, Tony, Nina and all of their children, extended family, and close family friends. Especially to all of the people whose lives Mrs. B touched. She was a wonderful woman with a huge heart. She will be dearly missed and remembered fondly. We love you Mrs B.

I always wished I could have met my aunt Carol. I’ve heard nothing but good things about her over the years from my father and her younger brother, Michael Sharkey. It sounds like Carol was someone that, when she put her mind to something, achieved her goals. May she rest in peace and smile down at us with her parents and sisters.
