  • Tony, Tom, Tommy, and Joash, : My deepest sympathy in the loss of Carolyn.
    My heart sank when I read this. Did not realize till just recently she was in the nursing home, but not sure which one she was in. A friend of both of ours was suppose to let me know where as soon as they found out. I am so sorry I did not get the chance to come see her, I do believe she would have known me. We shared so many fun times together. We laughed, and cried together. Many memories all good. I loved that girl, and she was a very special part of my time at Kelsey Hayes, and after. I have many pictures of her and her smile. I remember the time the two of us went to Florida for 10 days , laughed the whole time. I cannot believe she is gone. Our friendship was something I will never forget. I know the last time I talked to her she had turned her life over to Christ and was living for him, and knew she would see her Mom again sometime. I know now that she is truly at peace and at home with her Savior. I will always have a special place in my heart for her. (Until we meet again my Dear Friend). Love and Prayers to the family.
