I met Carolyn at crochet class she was always funny and in a joyful mood. I will never forget when we were working on shawls and were supposed to bring our project finished the following week. The week passed and carolyn showed up with her shawl but instead it was an afghan. I asked her what happened she said she started watching Elvis Presley and got to tapping with the music and before she knew it the shawl was an afghan. We laughed so hard she will be truly missed.

Your mom was a "hoot ". She gave me hell over my loud car but she was always the first to praise me for my accomplishments. She made this world a better place.

Dear Jade and family,
Your mother was one of the most "awesome " women I have ever had the pleasure of calling my friend. She will be missed by many. She never met a stranger and would give her last dollar to anyone in need, but she never hesitated to tell you if she thought you needed to be straightened out. She was the original "tell it like it is " and " it is what it is". You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Jade, I still cannot believe it. I am so sorry. I loved her so when we were younger and have so many great memories. I am sorry that i had not kept up better in the last few years. Aunt Babe was always my very favorite aunt in the whole world. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your gorgeous son and family. If I can help in any way, please call me. I will miss her!!!!!
