I've know Carolyn 46 years. Durning that time anytime I was ever around Carolyn she was a kind, loving caring person who had a very big heart.. She loved life and was a happy person inside..She loved her daughter Heather beyond words. Heather was her whole life and she wanted her to be happy. Like all the family I will miss her, But I'd say to her daughter Heather, there will be days that are worst than other days, and times you would give anything to talk to your momma. Ask God to help you and give you strength to get through this, and on those days you really need your momma - PRAY - ask God for his strength. Always know in your heart that just as much as you love your child, Carolyn loved you the same.. She's in heaven and she is so happy now, and bless her heart she is no longer dealing with all she had to deal with.. She feels no pain or no hurt. Be thankful and give God the praise for all the happy years you had with Carolyn. Prayer for the family don't stop in a day or so, I will always keep the family in my prayers, as I love the family with all my heart.. Carolyn will always be missed here in this life - but she will forever and eternity be happy and at peace.. Love ; Debbie

So sorry for the loss to your family. I have many memories of Carolyn and I knew how much she loved Heather and the rest of her family. May you also remember the things that made you smile and laugh. I'm sure they were many. I have a few of my own.

Carolyn was a wonderful lady, with a true desire to listen to whatever may have been bothering me whether it be when we worked together or around a dinner table. She was a fighter, a lovely champion. I am honored to have known her. Amber and I express our deepest condolences, love, and thoughts during this time. Carolyn raised an amazing daughter, instilling in her the best qualities that will live on in her precious granddaughter. Her impact is far reaching, personality timeless. We love her and the entire family, gutted for your loss but hopeful in the knowledge of paradise that she now calls home. -Matt &Amber
