We are so blessed to have known this woman whether as family or friend or under her care as a nurse. It takes a strong soul to give life and comfort to so many. She was so positive in every way. In later years, she battled the onset of dementia and at times became frustrated but that never broke her spirit. She remained strong and it never got the best of her, never changed the kind and sweet soul we’ve loved as long as we have always known her.  It makes us feel better knowing that she was always in our lives, always giving us strength as we navigated the joys and trials in our own lives. Thank you Carolyn, thank you Mom. God bless you always.
