  • My heartfelt love and prayers go out to my cousin Carolyn and her wonderful family.

    I grew up with Carolyn and she was always a natural people person with a very big heart even as a teenager. It is clear that she has built a strong and abiding circle of friends and family around her as she married and raised a family.

    The tragedy of her dying too young can only be calmed by taking a moment to see just how much better she left this world because she lived her life so well.

    God will absolutely bless and keep her forever and ever.

  • We were very close to Carolyn during her growing years. She was a very lovely and thoughtful child and young woman. That followed her through her life as wife, mother, extended family and friends.Her time with her earthly home was much too short. A better angel on earth and now in her heavenly home. She will be missed.

  • We are so sorry for your loss.
