    I was so saddened to here of Carolyn’s passing. Carolyn was my family’s neighbor on McIntyre Street, along with her mom and dad we used to call Godma and Best Buddie. Carolyn was so kind to my siblings and I. She would take us to high school football games, give us rides, play games, and the most famous ‘hiding go seek’ at night. You will be missed Carolyn. My condolences and prayers to the family.♥️

Oh how you will be missed in that empty seat right by us for so many years. Our special thoughts to Susan Gunter and the Stewart family.
