Hi Tom, your Eulogy for your mother was very heartfelt. You also provided a selfless gift to us all by reminding us how special Carolyn was as a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend . Your mother, you, your daughters, Ann and Johnny and all her family and friends will be in our prayers. Your mother went beyond friendship for us, she was FAMILY to Robert and me. In light that our mothers are no longer on Earth, Carolyn became an adopted mother to us. We aren´t sure who adopted who first but know it was Divine. We will always remember your sweet Mom fondly. This Day is as BEAUTIFUL as your Mother´s Spirit which lives on for Eternity, Thanks be to God. YSIC & YBIC, Janet and Robert McBride

Carolyn and I met when we attended VCU when it was RPI. I was so surprised when she became a member of Derbyshire and also a member of our Sunday School class. Carolyn lived her life showing the world she was a Christian and always belivering in prayer. Carolyn will be greatly missed.
