Aunt Caroline had the biggest heart in the world! She and Uncle Jim are some of my most blessed memories. I can’t ever remember a time when she wasn’t anything but positive, loving and caring. The world needs more Aunt Caroline’s. Luckily her bright spirit lives on in her children, grandkids, great grandkids, nieces and nephews and everyone she loved. Miss you Aunt Caroline.

My Aunt Caroline..... Bright blue eyes with a sparkle. Unmistakable soft laugh. Full of joy. Generous. Giving. A treasure. Kind. Thoughtful. Loving. Happy. And so very much more than this. She was a wonderful Aunt and she was a truly special person in my life.... To all of my cousins, it is with deep sympathy and great love, that I write this today. She is deeply missed.

I absolutely looked forward to all the Johnson Family Reunions held in Oak Harbor, Washington. The highlight was to sit and listen to Aunt Caroline and all my other Aunts and Uncles tell their stories. Now it's our turn, all of my first cousins. Let's get together and tell our stories.
I love you all and share your sadness.

Growing up, I spent many nights with grandma and grandpa Belcher. I feel like I spent most weekends and most of my summers at their house. I have so many memories of them. I'll share one of my favorite memories I have with her.
One night, I was five/six years old, I remembered that there was a loud thunderstorm. I got scared and woke grandma up. She assured me that everything was alright and I remembered her telling me to lay still and enjoy God telling his children goodnight. My response was, "He should be more quiet with his good nights."
