Elizabeth Kallas

Carolyn was always a bright, warm smile and hug whenever you saw her. She radiated happiness and there was a certain peace about her that everyone felt in her presence. My kids loved seeing her at church and she made EACH child feel special and singled out. She had a gift and we should all strive to be more loving, caring and unconditionally faithful (and friendly)...just like Carolyn. My heart goes out to her family, friends and loved ones. She will be dearly missed but we must remember that her struggle is over and she is finally at peace...and not suffering.
Much love...
