My heart is so heavy. I met Carolyn at Eagle Hill. Henry and Rani are the same age and we shared many parenting joys and challenges. Eagle Hill families share an immediate bond since we are so vulnerable by the time we find the right school for our children. Carolyn, I was so lucky to know you. You had a beautiful smile and always seemed so calm. You gave love generously and you always offered to volunteer at the school. Your hugs were always so welcome and so needed. I felt reassured that I wasn’t alone trying to do the best for our children. You will be dearly missed.

My sweet Carolyn, how we will all miss you so! These days I'm thinking of the early years when I was in awe your boundless energy. You could get more done in an hour than I can get done in a day. I used to stand in the Beeson's kitchen and wonder how to get what you had. You were the one to remember all the milestones. Who will tell me now how old each of my kids were when they walked or talked or potty trained and I don't remember? You remembered everything! I will always remember you with love my friend
