  • So many childhood memories…I could write a book probably, but we surely know she is in heaven with Toni which does my heart good. To Connie, Monte & Felicia and families, I love you all and pray for the Grace and Peace that only the Lord can provide in these times. Carolyn was a huge blessing, encouragement and support to both Lisa and I in the loss of our mom this past January and for that I am so thankful.

    • Thank you, Tracy. We love your family too. There are so many fun memories to cherish. It was wonderful to see you and Lisa. God bless.

  • So sorry for your loss. I sang with Carolyn in Sweet Adelines and also sang with her in a quartet with them. She always had a smile. I have kept up with her life through face book and sorry to lose her. Prayers to all her family to keep you strong in this time. She will be greatly missed by all.

  • To Carolyn’s family: Carolyn was one of the strongest, smartest people I’ve ever known. She was my mom’s best friend. My mom loved her very much, she also sang at my wedding. I pray God will give you peace and comfort. God rest her soul, and may her memory always live with her family and friends.
