She had many talents.

Carolyn was and always will be our mother, best friend, mentor, as she showed us to see the best in others, to have a compassionate heart; to give freely and forgive quickly.  She taught us the love the Lord with all our heart, trusting in him and to not lean unto our own understanding, acknowledge him and he will direct us.  She was an amazing wife and adored her husband.  A beautiful example for all of us is the love, sacrifices, teachings throughout her life that we will hold close to our hearts.

Carolyn will be walking on streets paved of gold, until that sweet day that we will all reunite, you are forever in our hearts. May God’s grace and glory fill this family and to anyone that has lost a loved one. Remembering always to put the whole armor of God on.
