Carolyn, was one of
"Those Unforgettable People
That You NEVER Forget"
I asked her once, if she ever thought of being a drill Sargent? She answered, by saying "I already am, and have been doing it for years, now tell me one of your funny stories!" I answered, "No Need, you already told one"
I got the "LOOK" !
We both laughed!
My deepest Sympathies to the whole Family ! No doubt, she will be missed… But oh,
what a Beautiful Place she is
and with no more pain and struggles !

Our deepest condolences and love for all of you during this sad time. I remember when I first met Carolyn, I had just had knee surgery and. She came to our door to visit and check up on me! We loved getting together with DeDe and Jay and the Rileys and going out for dinner.
Carolyn had a wonderful sense of humor and spunk!
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
