How very sad to say goodbye to our beloved Aunt Ca Ca (Carolyn). She was always a fun and lively person to be around and some of my earliest memories were spending time with her! She had this great funny little chuckle and such a dry sense of humor that always kept me laughing. She will always have a special place in my heart and will be missed greatly. Love to my cousins, Shelly and Kelly.
God speed, my sweet Ca Ca!

My sweet baby sister is gone...I will miss her forever. We shared so many early memories. She carried a scar from the time I wrecked into her on our new bikes.
She was an enormous help when I was a young mother with three small children. She came to my house every weekend. She cleaned and babysat and played with my babies.
She was a lifesavers for me and my children.
There will forever be an empty spot in my heart that no one else can fill. Rest In Peace, sweet Carolyn. Shirley
