My heart goes out to you, Pete, Tim and Tracy. Carolyn was a wonderful, sweet woman who I had the pleasure of knowing through my own mother. She was always smiling....I'll remember her that way.

Carolyn was such a special person to me when I was a little girl. She always took time to talk and play with me. She and Aaron were always so good to my Mom, (Aunt Sallie) when we visited Aunt Eliza and made sure to help them spend time together when possible. I know she will be missed and our prayers are with Aaron and the boys. Marilyn Stark (Charleston, SC)

Mrs. Carolyn was a very loving and caring woman who didn't meet someone she didn't come to love. She shared her wisdom and love to everyone. She will always be in my heart. The Labra and Grega family have your family in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you.

I met Mrs. Mallard only a few times at Tim's. She was always warm and friendly and talked like she had known me forever. She was and is a beautiful soul! My thoughts and prayers are with the Mallard family. May you find comfort in God's love at this time.
