My mom was a beautiful woman. Often, when returning home from school or a date or a sporting event, she would be waiting for me reading her scriptures. Always warm and welcoming to everyone who came by our house. Thanks for sharing your memories and best wishes. We miss her very much and are also very happy for her present situation. I know my parents are thrilled to be reunited.

I'm so sorry I can't come down but I do remember many times when I was married to Justice meeting with Carolan and when she and ken were married they came to our apartment first afterwards so we were the first to know of their inlopment. After I was widowed from Justice I also went with them to the Salt lake Temple to help them when they were sealed. Carolan was always a beautiful sweet lady. I remember the picture shown here showcasing the Photo shop that took it and it was a huge picture out in front of their business for a long time. My love and condulences go to the family. I believe my son Richard is going to come to the funeral to represent our family.
