    Oh Sam and family I am so sorry that I missed the services for Carolyn . The first time I met her I loved her gentle spirit and strength. I enjoyed doing her pedicures and she always felt better when she left but I was the one blessed! She loved you Sam and her children especially her precious grandchildren. She always talked about her love for them. I know she will be greatly missed❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Love and prayers for you all until we meet her again. And we will she loved God and His light shined through her!!
