Kevin, (Kevin Jr)., Christine, Lorena, Craig and Gabby.,
We are so saddened to hear the news about your mom (grandmother). She was a special friend to us during the 32 years that we lived in Franklinton. She was a devout Catholic , always praying for so many.
We are praying for all of you at this time of great loss that God sends you His peace and comfort. May our friend Carolyn rest in the arms of Jesus and Mary for all eternity.

Carolyn, I did not remember you all that much from my youth and the large family gatherings. But when my Mom passed we connected and I got to know what a great, loving, sweet, kind woman you truly are. While I will miss you greatly especially your love for my Dad as you favorite cousin I will still have you through your wonderful children. May God bless and keep you always.
