Condolences for Carolynne Almyra Henderson

Dear family of Carolynne, I didn't get to talk to any of you at the funeral as I had a doctor's appointment, but I wanted you to know it was a lovely tribute to an elect lady. She was so loving and giving! Our families had so many great times together camping and traveling as the children grew up, the youngest ones being best friends to my kids. Carolynne was like a second mom to them, and George a second dad. She also worked with me in Young Women's and she was always so generous with her time and talents, following through with everything and totally dependable. I love Carolynne and always will. She will missed greatly, but I know she is happy where she is and looks forward to seeing all of us again someday. May God bless you all with peace and comfort. With sympathy and love, Roberta Blain
