    BEYER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. BEYER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to an extraordinary woman and admired constituent, Carol Glover, who passed away on Monday, January 12, as a result of the tragic incident aboard Metro train 302.

    Carol was a devoted mother who raised her two sons in Alexandria, Virginia. Many of her friends and family describe her as ``the ultimate sports mom cheerleader'' because she could often be found cheering on the sidelines of her sons' football, soccer, and basketball games. Carol was also the den mother for her sons' Cub Scouts troop and was said to treat all like her own children.

    Carol had a successful 20-year career as a contractor for the Federal Government. She studied computer programming at Drexel University, where she graduated with honors, and she recently received the Employee of the Year honor. It is clear she was as diligent in her work as she was in raising her children.

    Carol will be remembered as a woman of strong faith with a gentle demeanor and warm heart. At her funeral her mother said: ``In life we all have a dark tunnel to go through. Stay on track, and you will see the light at the end of the tunnel.'' Her mother believed that Carol had found that light.

    Carol leaves behind sons Anthony, who served in the Marines for 13 years, and Marcus, who works for a Christian nonprofit here in Washington, D.C.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carol's family, friends, and to all those whose lives were touched by this amazing woman.
