I can't tell most of our memories, Carolyn swore me to secrecy. 😊Carolyn is the friend everybody needs. There was never a dull moment around her and no matter what, you knew she was always there for you. She passed her zest for life to everyone around her. We will miss her dearly, but she will live on in our great memories and put another smile on our face. I love you my friend!

We have known Carolyn and Bill for many years. We made numerous trips with them. New Orleans was great! Many were National Guard related. Often we went camping with our campers. We also had great times with them at their lake home. Wherever we were, we could count on them keeping us entertained. A funnier twosome would be hard to find! Sweet Carolyn will be missed by so many! She will live on in our hearts always and those who knew her are richer for having known her.
