Nana I love you so much we all miss you very much. I think about you everyday it's hard without you here it really is i want to cry every night but it just hurts when i do. I miss your cooking and the family getting together and all of us happy. But it's like ever since you passed the family has just split apart and i don't like it. A lot has changed since you've been gone. I love you so much Nana.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have many fun memories of Carolyn and Uncle Jimmy. She made so many of my outfits as a child and was always fun to be around! Love to all of you and your family is in my heart, thoughts and prayers!

Carolyn was my sister-in-law. She was my big brothers wife. Carolyn had a great love for Jimmy, her children and great grandchildren. She was always the "Rock" in the family arena and she made sure that all of her family was loved and taken care of. I know her children & grandchildren have wonderful memories of all the good cooking and great love she displayed for her family. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you. Our love,
