    My prayers are with all who knew and loved Carolyn. She touched many lives with her kindness and caring. She will always be remembered and cherished even by me…I never had the pleasure of meeting Carolyn but saw the deep love Joey, Jess, Bentley and Jen felt for her.

    Joey and Jennell — life isn’t always fair, and the good ones are sometimes taken too soon. Your mom was one of the good ones, in fact she was the best! Know and be comforted in that she loved you both, fiercely and deeply, and she will always be with you. She will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of having her in their lives.

    Carolyn, i got the pleasure of meeting you and being a part of your family these past three years. It breaks my heart that you were taken too soon. I have so many fond memories of you, mostly funny. I had Didi laughing the other day just reminiscing about the ‘special’ times you spent with Didi and I when she was being your normal ‘Pain in the butt’ even though you would have said that differently…Carolyn you have touched so many peoples lives, it is an honor to be able to help and be there for you and your family these past years, especially through these tough times. you are deeply missed and loved by everyone including me! Love you Carolyn -Claire

    Mommy I miss you so much … This isn’t fair. It been a month since you have been gone 🙁 I can’t believe my best friend my role model my everything is taking away from me. It so hard going through life without you mom. This is not fair at all.. But I guess Joey and I will make you proud. I love you with my whole broken heart. My life will never be the same.
