I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a loved one in death is such a difficult thing to cope with. My heart goes out to the family and friends of Carolyn during this time. Cherish the good memories. Please find comfort in knowing that God views death as an "enemy" and will act to end it forever (1st Cor 15:26). God's Word also promises a time in the future where we can all have a hope of seeing our dead loved ones again (John 5:28,29).
Take care.

Condolences to the family, who I only knew of her daughter, Larri and her Aunt, who she dearly loved. I had the deepest appreciation to Carolyn for taking care of my Uncle. She will forever be thought of as someone who truly cared for him. I am glad I kept in touch with her through the years.

I am very sad to learn of Carolyn's passing. I have known her since she and her family moved to the Cook-Levering School District in 1948 or 49. She was a classmate of mine from then and through Ithaca High School. I have some photos of those years and later. If the family wishes, I will provide them- just let me know. Harold Kellogg

Im so sorry for your families loss. I didn't know her really well, but she was our neighbor. I enjoyed seeing her outside and helping her with her yard. She will be deeply missed by us. May she rest in peace.
