We journeyed together through the Mico. Carolyn death changes everything! Time changes nothing. Looking on your life celebration the isles are filled with good friend and family and lot of great music are being played.....just the way you would have liked it. You have worked with the most precious of human, "the little children" whose mind and soul you have moulded and prepared them for life's journey.  You lived life your way and you were loved unconditionally. I know that GOD will open his arms and welcome you home and one day we will meet again. Rest in peace my friend and see you on the otherside.

I have visited this site several times, but I found it extremely difficult to write because I was hoping that they have made an error.
Whilst death is inevitable,for everyone, I never associated death with you,Hopie. You were so filled with vitality and zest and obvious beauty.

I have known you for so long: Titchfield &Mico; we both understood the joys and the inescapable ills of growing up and the burning desire to succeed.
Carolyn, you did, your legacy remains in tact especially through Cheddi and Kimani. You were a shining example to many.

I will always remember your sense of humour . I have read the last Facebook conversation we had and I could still find something to laugh about .You were so witty with words, not surprising, you were a straight A student, in English Language.
Hopie, walk good. You will be missed .

Carolyn ‘Hopie’ , you came and you conquered. You’ve left an indelible mark on the lives of those you’ve touched and you will be greatly missed. May your soul now rest in eternal peace until we meet again. To the family I continue to pray for Gods comfort over each and everyone of your lives

Carolyn was a highly valuable and respected member of our team at Success Training College in Freeport: (Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology). She was a wonderful person who understood the meaning of the word "TEAM." I remembered my first encountered with her at the college in Freeport: she was welcoming, encouraging, supportive, lively and positive. As an educator, she was always more focused on achieving the goal of the learning institution than on her own benefits. She was dedicated - content to do the best job she could and always succeeded. Thus, the effect of her passing are felt by each and everyone of us. Her great contribution to the delivery of both the Primary and Higher Education in Freeport which will not be forgotten! To her Son, family, relative and friends: Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. In remembering Carolyn, let us remember the happy moments and interactions we have had with her throughout the years we have known her. "Remembering is an act of resurrection. Each repetition is a vital layer of mourning; in memory of those we are sure to meet again." From: Ms. Debbie Samuels (Former Lecturer & Teacher of Freeport, The Bahamas); and daughter Bianca.

I knew Carolyn since third form at Titchfield High School after she was transferred from Happy Grove  High and we developed a friendship that lasted up to the time of her pàssing. I am happy that throughout the years no matter where we were, we kept in touch with each other.

She loved her family. She constantly spoke about Mama, Cheddi, Kimani and her siblings. Prior to her passing, she told me that she hoped to be alive for the birth of her first grand child and yes, the Lord  did answer her prayer. I got a voice message from her the morning after her grand daughter's birth and although her voice was not as strong as it usually was, I could hear her joy and happiness and she was thankful.

Carolyn will always have a special place in my heart.  I will forever love her. She was special,  a Gem that I will always treasure. She never gave up and fought to the end. I am heartbroken, but consoled knowing that she is with Lord, free from all her pain and suffering. 

Until we meet again my dear friend and sister, ŕest in peace and may light perpetual shine on you.
❤❤

Ms. Wright was such a beautiful person. There are no words to express the sadness that we feel at Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology. She was so much more than a lecturer. She supported every event that she could. She was a professional with a big heart. We mourn her loss but are so grateful for the time we had with her.
My friend I take comfort in knowing that you are at peace and with the Father. You were a brave warrior.

To one of the best teachers I have ever met, tomorrows the day we remember you and the light you brought to the lives of many. Ms. Wright was a mother figure to me, my sixth grade teacher who led her "Wright Bunch" on to greater things. She always supported us years after we graduated primary school, gave words of encouragement and always shared laughs with us. You will greatly be missed Ms.Wright and i still cant believe that your not here to go on the lunch date we planned.

I first met you when I was posted at Lewis Yard Primary and I was placed in 4th grade with you. The years we spent together in 4th grade were awesome. You quickly became family. When I came to LYPS my Rachelle was only 1 month and she took an immediate liking to you and you to her. You have always been there for her and insisted on being her Godmother. Having my 2 children diagnosed with luekodystrophy was rough but you were there through some of my darkest hours with wise counsel and words of comfort. I'll definitely miss you and so will your Diva Godchild Ray.

I met Carolyn when she came to Freeport Primary School and our friendship began. How many memories we had, some sad and others happy. I still cry looking at all our memories that we spent together. Any activity that the school did we went together. One of them was an outing with the colleagues and you asked me what I was drinking, I told her mojito and I told her try it .. it's delicious, she told me and she had one. Usually she didn't drink alcohol, never ... that day she sang and danced. I liked seeing her happy. On the way home we laughed so hard and made jokes about what we had done. I will never forget you my friend. Bris and I send you a big hug up to heaven This is señorita Pillaca her Spanish friend forever an ever...

Miss Wright, I shall forever remember you and your beautiful smile. Your death was a shocker to me. I am comforted by the passage from scripture which assures us that: "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4
Sleep on and take your rest until we meet again.
Posted by Edna Gomez on June 11, 2021
Carolyn you were a gem. I will never forget the conversations we would have. You had such a special love for the students in your care. Sleep on my dear. It's alright now!

Ms. Wright knew me way before I knew her, from working with my mum. She was always a quite soul and was never afraid to as for assistance. We spoke more in passing and she always had a compliment to say. I admired her strength, will power, and spirituality. I visited her church in Hawksbill one Sunday and she was more than happy to introduce me to her members. Your kind words and encouragements have and will continue to be missed around Freeport Primary. Sleep in Peace Ms. Wright.

You were one of the most encouraging, photogenic, dedicated, and innovative teachers I’ve had. Grade 6 was scary at first but because of you it will be the most memorable classes I’ve ever had. From parties, to dinners, and dancing together, you’ve made everyone’s life better. I am so happy that you were my teacher!! The love the Wright Bunch has for you is like no other. I love you and want you to take your rest. You deserve it.
Posted by Lily Moxey on June 9, 2021
Your outstanding abilities were evident as you quietly moved around the campus of FPS. Your love for the boys in your class brought joy to all of us. Your support and encouragement to keira on teaching practice contributed to her success. As a fashionesta, the bags, shoes and outfits brought much laughter to our conversations. Be the angel like only you can be...you will always be in our thoughts...much love. Rest in peace Ms. C. Wright.

Posted by Dionne Williams on June 9, 2021
Mrs. Wright, you offered me assistance and a sympathetic ear when I was first posted at FPS. You were always so passionate about your students and their achievements. Your family was your EVERYTHING and the pride and love you had for them was always evident. 
You will definitely be missed.

I still can't believe you are gone. I remember when you came to Freeport eager and enthused to start your new school. You had a vibrant spirit, always smiling, and a humble person. You will truly be missed! My heart goes out to your family! May God continue to strengthen them during this difficult time, and grant great peace that surpasses all understanding. S.I.P. Ms. Wright! Gone too soon!

Carolyn and I first came into contact as little girls at Titchfield High School. I knew her brothers, Bunny and Barry .They were my neighbours and so I being "Miss Nuffy" sought her out and introduced myself. She was a pleasant and sweet young lady. Since then we developed a relationship that was never broken.
Caro became a teacher and our paths crossed again at Vaz Prep. She taught Yannick-my son- and he was friends with Cheddi, her son. Later, we found out that our boys were born on the same day! She adopted Yannick and has been his 2nd Mommy ever since. She never forgot to greet him on his birthday ever.

The last time we met was in 2019(I think) when she was visiting at Kencot SDA where I attend . Bwoy, one piece a hug up and kiss up! we had not seen each other in person for many years. That is when I was to learnt that she was terminally ill. She has been in my prayers ever since and God did grant her time.

She was a frequent visitor to "Daily Bible Reading " and we continued to hold her up in prayer.
I believe she has made her calling and election sure and God has now released her from this cruel world of pain and sorrow, I pray we will be faithful ,so we will dance with Caro on the sea of glass. Till then sleep in sweet peace my beloved fren' Yannick's other Mother.

I pray Cheddi and Kimani will also find salvation and so we will have a grand reunion in the sky.

It is my honor to pay tribute to my dear friend Ms Carolyn Wright or as I would call her Wrighty. We met as colleagues at the Lewis Yard Primary School in 2001. Although I wish I was giving this tribute at her birthday party or even her retirement party instead I am writing this tribute, being here never-the-less reminds us all that live isn’t fair but GOD IS JUST. 
Carolyn was a loyal colleague to some, a special friend to many, a dedicated teacher to all her students, and a committed mom to her boys. Today I honor my dear friend..
“How does one pay tribute to a champion like Carolyn Wright” is the question I will attempt to answer:
Remembering her enthusiasm for teaching: “Carolyn did not just teach; she found a way to incorporate her love and gusto into her lessons. Music as most of you know was a big part of her life, not just music but reggae music, she would have the introductions to her lessons where every child and even some of her fellow peers were captivated, I remember this introduction where she had the class doing the Usain Bolt victory dance, of course she was leading it and enjoying it as much as the class.
Carolyn and I would share so many stories about our children. Oh, how she loved her boys Cheddi and Kimani. Yes, she really loved her sons, seeing Cheddi graduate from college was the highlight of her life; only to surpass by the marriage of Kimani and then to top that the birth of her granddaughter whom was named after her “Carolyn”. Her eyes would light up when they hit a milestone, she was so proud of them.
Sometime in 2018 she fell ill but she was determined to beat it, she became more focus on Jesus. Carolyn was excited about doing things for the Lord. Doing the welcome at church some Sundays was a big thing for her and she looked forward to doing it.
I remember Carolyn invited me to a mother day celebration at her church, of course I agreed, the next thing I knew she was dragging me there the day before to set up the tables because she wanted to win the “best dress table competition”. Yes, that was Carolyn, very competitive.
On a personal note, while at work one day, I received some devastating news that “my mother” had passed, of course I could no longer hold it together. Who was the first person to my aid? you guess it…Carolyn and instead of Carolyn comforting me she was crying harder and perhaps even louder than me. She showed compassion where compassion was needed. Days after I said “ Wrighty you were supposed to comforting me but you were crying louder than me” she, said “Princey girl with a hearty laughter you know how we go.”
When I think of her uncompromising love for what she did. Even the very best of words, cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that I feel.
“How does one express the amazing essence and spirit of a champion like Carolyn Wright”
Well, they just can’t, she cannot be described in a few words or fit into anyone’s box… never the less we will all have tried.
Words like Hard-working, Unique, and Dedicated…will perhaps suffice

Carolyn, Hottie Hottie Girl, Diva , Sista Bags and Glam Mama we’ll remember you and the many ways you impacted the lives of those you encountered.
And today I grieve for you, and cry for you and even smile because of you…
And in all the tomorrows I feel you – gone in some ways, but you will forever live in the many lives of those you have affected.
Ps 115:16 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints

God know I was not prepared for this Caro. I didn't expect it, because we spoke the morning and you said you were going to eat your breakfast and you will call me back later, (sigh) but God called you home. Even though I miss your company, I know you are resting in God's sweet arms. Rest in perfect peace my dear.
Posted by Shavante Grant on May 31, 2021
Ms.Wright!,,WOW!!!..I can't begin to wrap my mind around the thought of your death. You were not only my 4th Grade teacher but more like a mom to me. I remember being pregnant and having my son you would always say that he's your grandson..Laughing at the inside joke that you would tell me about me and kimani in primary school..You were simply the best! Best dressed from head to toe..Will miss you and will always have a special place for you in my heart.!
Posted by Renee Cavanaugh on May 30, 2021
My beautiful cousin. I never had the chance to get to know u like I wanted with me being so much younger than you. What I do know when my grandma passed away you sent me a friend request on Facebook and we got connected. Even though, she was not related to you, you showed your support to your uncle, my grandfather like it wasn’t a bother. We started connected more & more through social media. U knew me as a child but u moved away before I had the chance to fully get to know you. However, that didn’t stop you from reaching out & showed your kindness. I’m so saddened by your passing but god knows best. Say hi to my grandma for me & rest in eternal peace.
Love Renee❤️

Til we meet...

Shared by Sherron McFarlane on May 29, 2021
My sweet Carol. I remember when we met, it was  about early January 1993, at the UWIH campus. We were both pregnant with our sons Kimani and David. I noticed that you were crying and I wondered for a moment, how you would feel if I walked over and just hug you. I concluded that I would have appreciated it so I carried out my intention. I told you that you didn't have to share, just cry on my shoulder. You cried then you shared, we then put heads together and settled the matter. We became sisters/friends from that moment. Kimani became our god child! Over the years we shared, we prayed, we joined hearts in prayer for our children and those of our friends and family. You would ask me to pray and I would. On mothers day 5/9/2021 we prayed together and exchanged loving compliments, you told me how much you love and appreciates me and I the same.  I didn't realize that it was goodbye!! I sent you prayers of healing and encouragement even on Tuesday morning. I will miss hearing your encouragement and laughter, and definitely your sweet spirit, your calm and humble persona. You quietly left us, you had to go because if we knew we'd definitely make a fuss!
Jesus was waiting so He set you free, now we must let go and hold our memories. Sleep on my friend. Rest in perfect peace my sister, until we meet at Jesus's feet.
