Mike and Mark,
I am so sorry I was not able to attend Carolyn's funeral, Sat. June 14th at Fairlawn! My grandson Will Jackson, Carrie's son's graduation from Brown County High School was that day at 11:00 am. I dearly loved your mom, Carolyn, and was actually shocked that she passed away. She had overcome so many health issues, that I was sure she would survive her fall, too.

I have so many great memories of Carolyn throughout the years as a neighbor, from church, and finally seeing her at Parkside Court. She truly lived a remarkable life and you both can be so proud of her.

My deepest condolences to you both,
Judy McCormick

I was so sad to hear of Carolyn's passing. I was out of town and could not make it to the memorial service. I worked with Carolyn for many years at Legal Aid where she volunteered her time as an intake specialist and then a Board member. She was an amazing woman. I will truly miss her loving personality and quick wit. My deepest condolences to her family.

Carolyn's family, I am so sorry for the loss of this special lady! we were in the Redacious Divas together. she was a very special friend! I hadn't heard from your mother for a while, I had no idea she was so ill. she loved all of you so very much and loved telling about all of you! I loved listening to her stories of her travels she got to enjoy! she was so proud of her family and all her kids! I didn't know until late this afternoon that she had passed, and I was heart broken I didn't get to tell her goodbye. but share her memories and speak of her often! I know I am a better person for having known her! thanks for sharing your Mom with me! hugs to all of you!
