My beautiful friend, Carolyn, is gone and there is a big hole in my heart. Not only was she beautiful, but she had a gorgeous voice and kind heart that made her a very very special friend. Our music collaborations were priceless and those memories will always be precious. We shared so many things besides music - road trips to Oregon, visits in Kansas, Sacramento and Washington, DC, texting back and forth in the last few months. I hear her voice in my head as I write this tribute "Say something fabulous Snooks!" I miss you dear girl!! You were always THE BEST!!! Hugs!

I met this beautiful woman just a few short months ago...I quickly learned she went by "Care", and had both sweet son and kind daughter-in law. I was always impressed that amidst the pain she told me she was in, this lady was always gorgeous! Make up and hair looking perfect, and well dressed. I feel my life is better having crossed her path. My heart is with all her loved ones, and may we always carry a little bit of Care in our hearts, to continue her legacy.

Grammy, my dearest grandmother and friend. I will love you forever. I will never forget all the time we shared laughing and joking. Spending the summers together, going to the salon, and having a fun time eating countless gummy bear vitamins. I thank you for always encouraging, helping, and being there for me when I needed it. You've helped me become the woman I am today. I'll miss coming to your place and watching movies together. And all those times when we felt and shared God's presence in the simplest of days. Those are the moments that I will miss the most. And those memories will forever be in my heart. I've always admired your strength and confidence. And your ability to tell it like it is and to be uniquely fabulous is a part of you that I will always keep and hold close to my heart. You are a beautiful, amazing soul and my heart aches that you are gone from this earth. But you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, and you have kept the faith. I love you so much. And I can't wait to see you in heaven.​

Carolyn - a dear childhood friend, my cousin, an early trio member where as kids we'd get in trouble for getting the giggles while performing at church, an inspiration for her musical abilities, and someone I could reconnect with wherever she was while I was traveling. Our friendship was one of those unusual ones where we could pick up our conversation where we left off years earlier. Recently we shared the unfortunate glamour of being the widows among our age group. We'd refer to ourselves as the 'odd couple' when in a family setting. We even shared cancer. What a cruel disease. She is gone, and I'm still here. Some things feel so unfair. This is one! I have no doubt I'll see her again in a better place. Thank God we have the hope of Salvation. Thank God he gave us His Son in our place. Thank God Carolyn is no longer suffering. Love you sweet lady!

Dear family of Care...........You don't know me, but I love you through your Mom. Both my husband, Jerald & I were her academy graduating classmates. But although I knew and admired her, I think likely I was always threatened by her, through only my insecurities. She was so stylish, talented artsy & classy. Only in recent years have we reconnected, and had primarily an online relationship, but not so many months ago she came to spend a weekend with us to go to PINE KNOLL BIBLE STUDY in which she reveled. Shortly before your Dad's death they came for an autumn weekend. We did Pine Knoll as well as Walt Disney Concert Hall before they drove all the way home. He sat at our breakfast table and said "You'd not believe the difference in our family life has made, knowing WHAT KIND OF A GOOD GOD HE IS!" That was the joy that bouyed your Mom through her widowhood and illness, and I can't imagine her gone, but rejoice she'll NEVER EVER EVER hurt again. And her prayers remain at God's throne for those she so loved. GOD KEEP YOU TIL YOU RENDEZVOUS in a better place!

Today I leave a flower for you Mom. I will never see a flower without remembering your beautiful face. You even wore the perfume, Beautiful, how apropos. Sunflowers and gardenias were your favorite flowers and they always made you smile. I miss you like crazy but I’m so glad you are finally free from pain. Thank you for the incredibly special times we have shared so deeply in the past few years. You are my Sunshine, my only sunshine, you made me happy when skies were gray…I hope you know dear, how much I love you. You took a big chunk of my heart with you. Keep it…until we meet again dear, sweet, beautiful Mama.
