I can't express in words what you mean to me. You have been the wind beneath my wings. Some days I would want to give up but you would encourage me to go on. Even tho you were sick yourself you always had a kind word for everyone and encourage them. I love you so much SIS and my life will be so empty without you. I'm so thankful that god gave me such a wonderful sister like you. Most people look a lifetime for a sister relationship like ours but they will never find cuz you were one on a million. Rest in peace my pretty girl. Until we meet again take care of yourself and daddy and mommy and our brother. I love you precious.

Suzanne, Brian and the Wilson family, we're very sorry for your loss. We met Carolyn only once, but she was kind and caring, and a lot of fun. Losing her must be like losing a sunshine in your lives. May time heal to ease your sorrow and may the knowledge that her suffering is over help to ease your pain. God bless you. Tokiko and Barbara

Dear friend - we have shared over 45 years of precious memories: raising children, sharing groceries at end of the month before payday, and braging rights regarding our children and grandchildren. You saw me many difficult days as a military wife and new mother. Even though our lives took seperate paths I always knew no matter what holiday came we would be getting a card from Tom and Carolyn. Periodic phone calls to check up on the families - we just picked up where we had left off. We had hoped to be able to come for the services but just could not work it out. Our hearts go out to Tom, the girls and their families. We love you and will miss you.
