I worked with Carolyn at Rehab Services. She was one of my favorite people. We reconnected on facebook. I am so sorry for the family's loss. She was such a special person.

Mama’s brother (Tom) was Carolyn’s father, and she was just slightly younger than me. She has been in my life as long as I can remember.

Carolyn and Garnett were incredibly kind to my parents in their last years, which is something my sister (Sandy) and I will always remember and appreciate.

All the best to Garnett, David, and the whole family during this extremely difficult time.

Love,

Alan

We will sure miss Carolyn at the ball fields in her Mavericks shirt cheering on Jordan and his teammates! She was such a sweet lady and loyal fan of her grand-kids. We enjoyed spending time with her and Garnett on many great long weekends playing baseball.

Carolyn was one of our favorite clients! I looked forward to visiting with her every year. She was always so thorough in providing her information and we always had several good laughs at each appointment. I can only imagine the loss her friends and loved ones are feeling right now...may God bless you all and bring you peace. I will miss her dearly!
