  2. I worked with Carolyn on the General/Jurisdictional Conference Delegation. She was an amazing and very sweet lady. I am so very sad about her passing. We know of her eternal reward; she was a woman of tremendous faith and generosity.

  3. Twenty years ago my wife, Jan, was diagnosed with breast cancer. After her surgery, Chemotherapy was prescribed. Carolyn wanted to know when her chemo treatments were. Jan had six, three weeks apart. EVERY evening we came home from those six Chemo treatments, Carolyn delivered us a full meal- the whole nine yards- salad, entree, vegetables, bread, dessert- all cooked by her. If there are angels on earth, she was one of them to me. Love in action.

  4. Prayers to family and friends. Greatly miss her smile and positive nature. She was always there to help. An angel now in heaven still helping others. Love you.
