May God comfort your family during this Christmas season. Carolyn's southern hospitality was always present as she visited with our parents, the Diehls, on Shady Bend. She knew all of us children and showed interest in our lives as we grew up next door to her and your dad. We will always remember her.

My sympathies to the family.
Our parents lived next door to each other on Shady Bend. Your mother and father were wonderful neighbors to Harry and Irene Diehl. I will always remember your mother's soft voice, sweet southern accent and charm.
May your memories give you comfort at this time. Deborah Diehl
