My deepest condolences for your family. I work at a WV Black Lung Clinic and Carolyn helped me so many times on claims for miners sick with black lung. She was so knowledgeable and cared deeply about her job. The times I talked with her at meetings and conferences, I know she was proud of and loved her family. Very sorry for your loss.

I worked with Carolyn before transferring to the Pikeville Black Lung Office. Carolyn was a dedicated Claims Examiner and destined to move up first to a Supervisor and then-District Director of the Charleston District Office. I send my sincere condolences to the family. May God provide you peace.

I was fortunate enough to meet Carolyn several years ago when I came to the Black Lung Program. She was always a professional hard working Director that I knew could get the job done and at the same time take care of her people. She had the extraordinary ability to help people achieve more than they (themselves) thought possible and achieve higher goals. Carolyn was a friend, colleague, and an inspiration to all of us in the program. It should be said that there are many, many people around the country that know Carolyn and the profound effect she had on delivering benefits to the nation’s miners.
