Getting to know Carolyn through the years was a joy. She was the real deal. The way way she lived out her faith, and the love she had for her family, will no doubt live on. I'll miss her smile, sincerety, and sense of humor; and am grateful for the fun times we had together. It was a privilege to know her. ♥️

Just want to send my deepest sympathies to the entire Bailey family. At one point in time - long ago - we considered ourselves as siblings of a sort and Carolyn was our "weekend mom". I have always admired her strength and perseverance. Looking back, I absolutely do not understand how she raised, fed, clothed 5 kiddos - then sometimes 3 more (part-time 😉 for a couple years). Y'all have always been in my thoughts and prayers over the years. We had some great times all together and I will cherish those memories. I'm so deeply sorry I can not be there in person to give my condolences.
