Aunt Carolyn has always meant the world to me. Although we did not see each other much in her later years everytime we did it was like no time had passed. She was very supportive when I lost my daughter with prayers, food, spent time with my other young children and gave me many words of support. I Love You Aunt Carolyn and will see you again!!
