I was sad to hear about Carolyn's passing. I have a lot of good memories of her when I was younger. She had the best laugh ever! It was infectious! I always thought her to be a really classy lady that was a lot of fun. I had not seen her in the last years but when I did see her @ grandma's funeral she made sure to talk to me and had many kind things to say. I am sure that she will be missed greatly. Jan

Dear Glade and Family, I was saddened to learn about the passing of Carolyn. Some 40 years ago, we worked together in the FSC Adjustments Branch and became good friends. She was a smart and caring lady and was alot of fun to work with. She had class and grace and she had so many friends. I hope each day just gets better and brighter for you all as you have time to think about good memories with her. Take care and God Bless. Scott Critchlow
