Today is a sad day for me. Trying to contact Carolyn with a question and I find out that she has passed. Carolyn was a great colleague, researcher and friend to many. She will be missed, but the work she did will be remembered for an eternity. Many will walk in the steps that she left for us. She was an awesome lady and friend. Her family will be in my prayers.

We are blessed to have Dr. Durham in our lives for a short time. Dr. Durham made an impact in our life. We are thankful for the opportunity of being her students. We learned more about Blacks in Latin American countries and its history. Dr. Durham made learning simple and fun. We will miss her dearly and we will see her in Glory.
