    I’m shocked over Carolyn’s passing as I just happened upon this notice. Carolyn was a good friend to me when my children were young and there will never be another like her-she loved to laugh. Farewell my friend.

    Jerry, Brady, Leslie and Russell, Margie, Brandon and I are very sorry for your loss. Always enjoyed working with Carolyn. She was definitely one of kind. Death is a terrible enemy of mankind but the Bible gives us hope and the scripture at Revelations 21:3, 4 always gave me comfort when my loved ones passed and hopefully it will for you too. Your family is definitely in our prayers.
