"Sweet Family and Dearest Friends.
My heart aches for you each. Your mother has been such a integral part of my life for many many year's. The memories of playing in the front yard to the wonderful meals she always cooked and served so many are very dear to my heart. Never in a million years did I know as a chld that we would share being a grand mother together through Natalie. My time with both Carolyn and DiDi was treasure gold nuggets filed in my heart. I ask the Lord to Bless and Comfort You Each through this time of great loss. As I reflect on comforts of such a treasured friend I can say without a doubt that she has risen in a New and Glorified body and walks on streets of Gold with our Savior. May The Lord Jesus hold and shelter you each in the wings of his love.
"You are all in our thoughts and prayers,May god be with you all until you meet again."
"Words cannot even begin to describe how deeply sorrowed I am to hear of Carolyn's passing. She was a beautiful, caring, nurturing, loving, godly woman who was loved by all those who knew her. She will be immensely missed. We can find comfort in the knowledge that she was a Christ follower and we will see her again one day soon in glory. May she rest in peace until that day. I love you, Carolyn. Thank you for being such a loving great grandma to my children and a wonderful mother figure to me. I'll see you soon. Love always, Jenn"
"How sorry we are for the loss of your loved one! May beautiful memories and happy times you shared with her bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Watt and Diane Moore"
"I am so Sorry for you alls loss. May God comfort you in this time of sorrow."
"I am so sorry to hear about your loss. It is very difficult on the remaining family members when we lose someone we dearly love. A scripture that comforts me is found at 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4.
There it says "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God."
During this difficult time, I hope the family can find the needed comfort from the promises found in God's word. (Revelation 21:3,4)"
"What a blessing Carolyn gave to each of her children & the extended family. You could see the love she had for her entire family. We will miss our friend but her loving kindness will never be forgotten. With God's love, Pam & Larry Riley"
My heart goes out to all of you, Carolyn was my adopted Mom for a lot of years. I loved and will miss her badly. We worked together at Weck and she kept me spiritually straight. You know Mom!! God be with you all during this difficult time. Love, Teresa Davis Browning"
