I was so fortunate to be able to call Caroline “Mom”. Her smiles, laughter, and gracious ways will echo in my heart forever. Mostly, I will be eternally grateful for the way she taught, by example, her daughter Laura how to be an amazing mother to our kids Stephanie and Rachel. Sorry I can’t be with the family to share in her celebration.

That wonderful smile followed by a warm hug, Caroline will be missed by so many.

Caroline was a breath of fresh air who always had a smile on her face! I miss seeing her bounce around the church.

When I think of Caroline, I think of dancing - and that we’d all be better off if we danced as much as she did!
