I know you are at peace and pain free, living the best life ever now that you are back home. You will forever remain in our hearts Carolyn.
I can remember when Erica and JW were dating, oh the many talks we had about those 2 kids and what they would face in life. You and I remained friends no matter where the rest of the family stood. I will miss our private talks.
Until we meet again.

My thoughts and prayers go out to each of your family members & friends.

I wish I could have heard your voice one last time. I miss our weekends together. I miss gossiping with you. I miss your stories. I miss your pouting. I miss us huddling at the window for hours being nosy. I miss your dancing. I miss you.

No matter what was going on in our lives, you always let me know that I was loved by you and still family. I loved you then and I always will. I will do my best to honor what you wanted and I will keep my promise to you.

I hope you're showing everyone how to have a good time up there. Keep us all in check down here because you know we still need to be set straight now and then. Faith, Abby, and I love you so much and we will see you again.

XOXOXO

I was blessed to have you as my Grandmother. You was a true definition of a strong woman... I only can hope to be at least half the woman you was. Some of my favorite memories are from our family gathering's during every holiday. From eating your homemade biscuit's to the homemade candy, everything you made was like no other's. As the years pasted and I now have a family of my own, I didn't come around much & for that I will always regret. I know you didn't love me any less as I have always loved you just as much. I know you are at peace now & are pain free. Please watch over Dad, Aunt Lisa, Aunt Sheila, Aunt Brenda, Uncle David & Uncle Jr a little extra as they go through this difficult journey of living without you. Watch over Johnathan,Timmy,Maxine,Seairra, Dana,Danena,Dudsey,Toby,Jermey, Tommy, Eric,Ryan and me with all of your many great grand children... Until we meet again you will always live in every single one of our hearts. I love you Granny!!!
