Caroline deRosset Wesley left this world on Oct. 29, 2014. She was 21 years old.

Born on Nov. 16, 1992 in Columbia, S.C., Caroline had a smile that could light up a room and seemed most fulfilled when giving to others. She possessed passions for the environment and equality and carried an immense intellectual curiosity. She was an avid lover of art, travel, books and music. Her laughter was music of its own. When not pursuing her passions, Caroline was most happy spending time with Hopps, her precious canine baby, and with Big Man, her gentle feline.
