Sending love and support to all of you as Carolyn is remembered today. I am so sorry for your loss and send my sincere and deepest sympathy.
I so remember the many family get- togethers we had all those years ago. The fun times, the laughs, and happy memories.
Carolyn was such a giving and caring person. She loved doing things for others and sharing time with her family and friends. She was so good with keeping up with the history of the family.
I will miss her smile, and the many chats we had over the phone.
Take time to Celebrate her today, but also remember the special times you shared with her over the years.
I am so very sorry that the weather has kept me from being there today. Please know that I am there in spirit and love with you.
Much love and blessings to all of you,
