Our sympathy to all the family. So sorry to hear of your loss. What a lady and a person to have as a friend. We remember all the years and all the Sunday School, church, UMW Evening Circle work Carolyn did. What a tribute to her-all those lives she touched with her faith and love and sacrifice. May those blessings she bestowed upon all of us be a blessing to all the family at this time. We feel blessed to have had her as part of our lives.
