I am so sad to hear of Carolyn's passing. All of us kids grew up camping with your family and I am thankful for those memories. She was a lifelong friend to my mom and dad. Love and hugs to all your family.

So very, very sorry to hear. My deepest sympathies to you all. She was such a sweet, sweet lady. Who would have known, 20 years after meeting her while we both worked at Fairfield that we would all be family years later. I will surely miss her sweet smile.

What a gift your precious mom was to those that were privileged to spend time with her. I see much of her in her girls - not just her beauty but her great sense of humor and how she loved well. “She is clothed with strength and dignity....” Proverbs 31:25
With love & prayers, Cheryl
I have fond memories of Aunt Carolyn. May she be at peace now.

My sincere condolences to you all on the loss of your mother. I remember how kind she was to me when she let me live with you all for a while when I was a teenager. So happy that she lived a full and happy life and although she is no longer on earth, you will meet again and be reunited. My prayers are with you all.
