Hey Mom. I walked in this morning and saw you laying there, and you look just like mamaw. All I can think about where the memories that we shared growing up with mamaw and granddaddy. We had some great times. You will forever be in my heart. But I did think it was wrong that we didn't have a can of coke with you.LOL. I know you're in good hands with the Lord. Tell Stuart I said hello. I know he'll take good care of you. I love you Mom. I will miss you very much. Till we meet again

Carolyn was a wonderful grandmother. She was a great friend to talk to and would try to help you with anything that she could. She could always make me laugh and look on the brighter side of things. I am glad that she was a part of life and will always keep her in my heart. She is now an angel watching over us in Heaven like she was down here. Love always-Brian

You will forever be missed and now you won't be scared of swimming and getting your face wet...lol. You were a living, walking commercial for Coca-Cola because they were your favorite.
I will forever miss and love you!! Debra
