With my deepest sympathy for your loss, Carolyn was like a second Mother to me growing up. She always treated me like one of her own and I learned so much from her caring, loving soul that has had a profound impact on me to this day. She was definitely a special person that I loved and will be greatly missed and forever in my heart.

Dear Linda and to all your family,

What a gift to have been given the joy of a mom such as your mom; and, to have had her Godly influence for so many years is truly a blessing. I hope you have much peace knowing she's in our heavenly Father's care and that God's blessings will lessen the sorrow. Please know that I am keeping you in my prayers.
