  14. One of the sweetest relatives and most beautiful souls that I’ve ever been blessed to know in this life. I didn’t get to see her often in later years but will always have precious memories of seeing her while growing up & being at family reunions. Always loved great aunt Eula and uncle Nick and all their wonderful children. Such a wonderful special family loved by all who know them. Carolyn has always had such a loving & caring spirit and loved by everyone who knew her. Always greeted everyone that beautiful smile and open arms. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with all her family, and May God hold you closely in His arms now and in the days ahead. Carolyn’s shining light will be greatly missed in this world..

I have always admired her. She was a lovely, gracious and loving woman with a caring and generous spirit. She will be missed beyond measure.
