I've known Carolyn since I was about 19. Remember her as happy and outgoing, a bright fixture in the Duplantis household on weekends, always teasing Patrick. In later years she was a little more laid back, but always greeted me with a bright smile & warm hug. She loved her dogs! She was always very kind to me and I will miss her.
