Kevin and Family,
We are so sorry about your loss. Caroline’s faith in Jesus brought her to heaven. What a blessing it was to know Caroline. Her strength as she fought her illness was amazing. She loved you all so much. May God bring you peace and comfort.
In HIS Grip, Kevin and Kathy

Carolyn and the family she created will always be an inspiration for me. The support she showed me during my father's illness and passing while she was struggling with her own fight was something so special to me. I will always cherish her memory and all she has gifted to us in her family and especially her children. I am so blessed and Carolyn and her family are part of those blessings. I love you all - Joe

I met Carolyn in 1999 when our husbands were stationed at Fort Polk, Louisiana. We hit it off immediately especially after we learned we shared the same roots back in southwestern PA. We stayed in touch through the years. I last talked to her almost two years ago but we've messaged through Facebook since then. I have been thinking of her so much lately and had wanted to call to catch up. I had no idea she was sick again. Kevin and kids, you have my deepest sympathy. I admired Carolyn so much for her strength and determination. She was truly amazing and I'm a better person for knowing her. God Bless you all.
