So sorry for your loss. Mrs. Carolyn enjoyed a good long life. So many cannot say the same. She had so many memories of a life well lived. She was especially strong.

Randy and Family,
I am sorry to read of the death of your mother. My own Mom died earlier in December and I know all to well the feeling of emptiness it leaves.
