My deepest sympathy to all of you. I feel like I’m part of your family I’ve known you so long. She fought a real battle the last years with her health issues. Sonny, you cared for her & her every need in a loving & caring way. Carolyn was a sweet lady with a compassion for all her family. May God bless all of you during this time of loss. I wish I could be with you but I have not been out much during this time.
I worked with Dear Carolyn for the seven years she was at GCHD. She was a loving and caring soul and I shall miss her very much. Not only was she a valued employee, she was a dear friend. Heaven gained another angel. Rest in peace, my dear friend. If you get a chance say hello to my Tim.
