Dear family and friends we were sad to hear that Carolyn had passed . Even so soon after my mother, Leona died. I have fond memories of living on the farm with Carolyn in summer time to help with tobacco crop. We were only a few years different in age I was on farm when Phyllis was born . I was told to go get aunt Faithey in a hurry that morning. There was no electric or phones. Phillip drove the old car to town to get doctor.Carolyn favorite dog was Trixie a collie. Sorry I could not come. I have a foot problem not allowing me to drive long distance.
Our love and best wishes to all of you.
