Dear family of Carolyn . May you receive comfort that will heal the pain of grief that is in your hearts . There is comfort to be found in the words from our Loving God ( Psalms 83:18) at John 11:25 and Isaiah 25:8. These words indicate that God has Carolyn in His Loving Memory and will not forget her . Also , it is my hope that those words of Promise bring a measure of peace to your souls .
