Condolence & Memory Journal

I love you mom. Miss you every day. Think of you often. I always realized how fortunate I was to have a mother such as you. I grew to respect that more and more every day. It seemed that each day that I look back on now, there was always a "lesson to be learned."
Now, being a father, I TOTALLY understand what that meant.
You taught me well. Gave me incentive to improve. To do the best that I could. To NEVER complain. To be a problem solver instead of a problem starter.
I love you mom. I think of you every day.
I miss you.

Jerry Jr.

This message is from Aunt Dot, Arthur, and myself. We wanted everyone to know how deeply loved Carolyn was! Aunt Dot has been so concerned and has has deeply appreciated everyone who called to let her know the seriousness of Carolyn's situation. Arthur has often talked about how close they were as children. I remember her lovely voice and her sweet manner. May God hold all of you close and may He comfort your hurting hearts. She will be missed!

I love you mom. Your legacy for raising a good son is treasured.
How many women would choose cotton dresses when they could have satins & lace? Or stand by her family, never once letting shade touch her face. How many hearts could live through all the winters you've known, and still not be cold?
True love travels on a gravel road.

I'm very sorry for your loss. Mrs. Carolyn was such a sweet lady. It was such a pleasure having her as my neighbor. I'm going to miss my conversations with her.
RIP Mrs. Carolyn

I am deeply saddened at hearing of Carolyn's passing. She taught me so much during the 9 years I worked for her. Carolyn was a force to be reckoned with when it came to Customers! Always with laser focus to ensure customers were the top priority. She helped everyone around her build foundations that would help us succeed in life. And was always willing to have fun doing so! I have many fond memories of Customer Service Week and Holidays in the office. The world is a little bit dimmer without her light! My condolences to her children, family and friends. Please know that your mother made ripples in all our lives, extending far beyond and impacting many.
