I will always remember Caroline as the fun, loving and caring person that she was.
I will cherish the great camping trips, the card games, the cookouts, the family and holiday gatherings.
So many great laughs and good times!
The last time I saw her I was greeted with a big smile and a hug!!
Heather, Justin and Nina, always hold on to the good times and good memories!! I am certain in my heart that she loved and cherished all three of you. Be strong and she will always be right there in your heart and memories!
Take care and love you guys!

I feel great sadness and disbelief after learning of Caroline's passing, way too young! The first thing that comes to mind about Caroline is her SMILE! She was such a kind and genuine person, with a unique laugh and giggle. Her nose kind of scrunched up when she laughed. We were not close friends but we came in and out of each others lives due to mutual friends. I remember (maybe a little foggy on the exact details) it was in the spring of Caroline's senior year, close to Prom, and she was bound and determined to have a golden tan for her prom dress (I think it was white and strapless). She was planning to skip school and go to the beach for the day (a few hours really). She ended up falling asleep and was red and burned on one side. I remember walking down the hall laughing with her afterward trying to help her figure out this "horrible" problem of tan lines showing and being burned for her prom pictures.

Many years later after high school, Caroline and I both happened to be working a Ruritan turkey oyster supper together in Mt Clinton. It was so great catching up and laughing about the silly things we did in high school. Caroline had not changed, she was still kind, lovely and the beautiful person on the inside and out I remembered from Harrisonburg High School. When we left that evening I told my husband how much I enjoyed seeing Caroline and I hoped our lives would cross again very soon.

I truly hope you will find peace in knowing how many lives Caroline touched. She will walk with the Lord and be a very special angel.

Caroline was such a sweet person with a kind heart. I’m so glad that I was able to reconnect with her on Facebook. We had several long heart to heart talks over the last several months. My heart goes out to her husband who she loved so very much. And too her family. You are in my prayers and thoughts.
