Based on my own interactions with Carolyn, and the comments that others have made, the one thing that really stands out is how much she loved being a mom to Dana and Cory. Her children and her grandchildren brought so much happiness into her life. Carolyn thoroughly enjoyed being a mother and grandmother. She was also a dear friend.
With fond memories,

To the family of Carolyn Sciandra ,After hearing of Carolyn's recent death, we'd like to send our condolences to you all, but at the same time share a few memories from years ago. Carolyn and I worked at the RiteAid pharmacy at George Urban & Harlem in the late 1980's. We had a good time working together, and I'd get constant updates on what Cory and Dana were doing. The highlight would be when the two sweeties would come in and brighten our day with their constant smiles and what adventures they were having that day! It was a welcome change from dealing with our neighborhood patients and their serious health concerns. When one of you has a quiet moment, contact me at email@example.com. I have some very nice photos from that time period that Carolyn wanted me to have; Dana's communion 4/29/90, Cory jazz class June 1990, and photos in the store (Halloween), some of which no one in your family has. When you contact me, we can arrange a transfer of the photos - maybe even a face to face meeting. Again, remember we're with you at this sad time, but also let's think of the happy times in the past. With best regards to you all, Norm & Martha Richter

I'm not really sure how to say goodbye to you, when I can't even wrap my head around the fact that you are gone. I guess I'll start by saying thank you. Thank you for being the best possible Mom Dana and I could ever have asked for. Thank you for giving us each and every day, enough love and wonderful memories to last us a lifetime. Thank you for having such a big heart, and for loving your grandkids with as much fierceness as you loved Dana and I. Thank you for being my go to person for every problem I needed solving, for every triumph worth celebrating, and every heartache that needing mending. You were there for me and you always knew exactly what I needed to hear to make things better, to cheer me up, or to cheer me on. Your personality was big and it was beautiful, you could light up a room with your amazing sense of humor. You were funny, caring, sweet, eccentric and kind. And to know you was to love you. And oh, how I love you. You are going to be greatly missed by so many. Me, Dana, your Gia girl, Riggs, Layla, Grandma, Skip, Cindy and the list goes on. The world lost a wonderful lady, but heaven has gained one heck of an amazing angel. I'm sure you are up in heaven looking down on us today and that brings me comfort. I'm comforted that even though I wish you didn't have to leave me so soon, I know it was your time and that you are no longer sick and worn out. It brings me comfort that you are now with god and that you are reunited with Grandpa and Uncle Mark. So I will not say goodbye today because I know this is only temporary. I know that I'll see you again when my time comes, so instead of goodbye I'll say thisI love you Mom, I'll talk to you often, I will think about you always and I'll see you later when we meet again in heaven.
Love always and forever, your Daughter Cory
