Wow... Carolyn lived such a rich life. Life shouldn't be measured by the years lived, but the people we loved. Carolyn was so loving, accepting and generous to everyone around her. It would be awesome to know how many lives she touched. I know mine is one of them. We will surely miss her.

Many hours we passed together, Auntie. For every one of them I will remember you always being lighthearted, kind, loving and fiercely loyal to your family and friends. You will be greatly missed by all of us left behind, but we look forward to a great big Auntie hug when we meet again. You set a wonderful example of how to live life fully and lovingly. I am sure you are being welcomed home with words like "Well done, good and faithful servant."
Love, Shari Welch

Our Grandma C,
She was a wonderful mother-in-law to me, the BEST mother to my Shawn and the most loving grandmother to my Junior. We will always cherish the scrumptious dinners in Muskegon when Shawn Junior was first born and all of the truly vivid Holidays, football parties and Sunday dinners for the entire clan. Her beans and hamhocks are the best! Grandma C also extended her love to my son's friends, the "balonie boys", Josh, R.J., Nick, Zack, Shane and so many others. God Bless. She will be missed by many but never forgotten.
