Mt heart breaks for Carolyn's family. I remember when I lost Mama, she and Brenda were the there immediately. I used to call Carolyn, Brenda and Mama(Barbara) the 3 musketeers. The bond between the 3 of them was unbreakable. It was funny to watch my kids when they were very young mistaking Carolyn for their Mamaw. The two of them looked so much alike it was easy to make that mistake. She was such a caring person. Always a true lady. She will be missed by everyone who was blessed to know her. I am honored to be able to say she was family. My prayers go out to her kids, grandkids, and all other family and friends that have lost such a gift from God. I love you Carolyn and will always be thankful for the memories I will cherish forever. May you rest in peace.
