New York woman’s obituary shares hate for Tom Brady

TbCarole Scarsella, from Lackawanna, N.Y., died on July 19. Carole's obituary looks like any other at first glance, however, if you read on you'll see that Carole's obituary is unique.

In the obituary, family members say Carole "smoked millions of cigarettes, "loved the New York Yankees and future NBA Hall of Famer Lebron James" and "HATED Tom Brady."

The family made sure that the word "hated" was in all capital letters, apparently in attempts to emphasize the hatred that Carole held for Tom Brady. It appears they proved their point, since the obituary has made news outlets across the country. 

Carole's hatred for Tom Brady is shared with many other citizens of Buffalo, where it is almost tradition to hate former New England Patriot's quarterback. 

It seems like Carole lived a great and eventful life and she will greatly be missed by her family and loved ones.
