My sweet Ms. Carolyn I shall miss your visits and your sweet kindness. You always made sure to visit me during my stroke recovery and your friends at Southwind and, you continued to even visit me when I got home. It's so hard to think that I will never hear your voice again on the phone. And even harder that I will not see that beautiful smile on your face. You had a big heart and you never forgot your friends. You visited the sick and prayed for our needs. You never once complained about your suffering.
I know God has Golden Angel Wings waiting for you up in heaven. Please come visit me when you come down from heaven to visit your family. I miss you soooo much now, but I know God called you home so you could be at peace and rest. You were and still are an amazing Christian woman. I was blessed to have you in my life. I shall never forget you my friend. I love you 💗
