Mrs. Kerby was an awsome mentor. She was so good to me and kept me in line. She had a way of putting things in perspective so young kids could understand. She was an angel on earth and I will always remember as an advocate for people in need. Love you Robby and Darrin!

Caroline and I have been friends for a long time and shared good and bad times. Lots of fun at pool parties and great times with just us girls. She was very dedicated to the challenged children she worked with for so many years. She loved the kids and was proud of what she could offer. She was a good person and friend. Her family meant the world to her.She will be missed. Love to you all.

Caroline was the sweetest individual. Could not ask for anyone better to live beside for 20 years. We all loved her and her passing will leave an emptiness in our hearts. Much love to her family.
