We first met Carolyn, our crew did, in 1975(?), when she first moved to Scituate from Long Island. Carolyn was so mature and beautiful and my parents always commented on how well mannered and radiant she was. We loved to go over her house and she had a very close tight knit family of females around her. She definitely stood out in her funny and friendly way. She marched in the band in HS , I can picture her walking along with her instrument, the sax I think! I thought that made her so unique. I was happy to have seen her at the 40th HS reunion. Yes, we'll miss her in Scituate. My condolences to Mary, Helen and your family.

From the moment I met Carolyn, I loved Carolyn! She was a kind, generous, open and caring person. I'm sadden by her way-to-early passing but find peace in knowing she's with her grandmother, mother and father. God bless you Carolyn as well as Helen and Mary and their families you've left behind. Love you! Susan

My beautiful sister, I hope you know how much I love you! You always made me laugh. I will never forget and always cherish the bond we shared. Your my best friend. And now my guardian angel. Give mom and dad a kiss and hug for me. See you again someday. Love you, Mary

When I think about my cousin Carolyn, I immediately think of her beautiful smile and genuine kindness. Knowing her essentially my entire life, she always made me feel special, and I have a feeling a lot of other people feel the same way. Being around her was always a happy time, her wonderful sense of humor and quickness to laugh was contagious. She had a very special and unique way of operating in this world. The world needs more people like Carolyn, she will be sorely missed. Till we meet again...

I will always remember my cousin Carolyn’s smile and the sound of her laugh. As a little girl she was always full of fun. I especially remember her singing along with the record player like a rock star and hamming it up.
I know she will be terribly missed and my heart goes out to everyone who is grieving her loss.
