Mrs. Carolyn was a true friend. She cared about others and let the loving presence of Jesus shine in and through her life. A sweet, gentle spirit, always so gracious and kind, even in times when she was hurting. I thank our LORD for the blessing of knowing her, and for knowing we will meet again, in His sweet Presence.
