In 2005, when Mildred Vyverman (our shared mother-in-law) passed away, I thanked Carolyn for sharing her children with me. She responded with "they are our children." I am glad you will be dancing and happy with Sweet Bill. I am also sure John is there to greet you. Carolyn will be missed by many friends and family that loved her. Prayers to her family and friends.
