Chris & Laura....my heartfelt condolences go out to both of you, your spouses, and children at the untimely passing of your Mother.  Your Mother was one of the first classmates to befriend me when I transferred from Baker Jr. Highschool to Taft. We continued our friendship through highschool.  I remember your Mother as one of the sweetest people I knew. My husband & I returned to Marion from Oklahoma about 2 years ago and I was invited to the "Taft Girls" Monthly Brunch at Perkins where friendships with your Mother and the other attendees were renewed. She beamed when telling me about her children and grandchildren, and I also learned we had some of the same interests. It was an honor to call her my friend.  May memories of happy times together help sustain you through the coming weeks and months. Blessings & prayers are coming your way.

I have been mowing for Carolyn for last few months since her husband(Bill) passed. I loved working for her and she was always easy to talk to. I will greatly miss seeing and speaking with her. She was very sweet.

Carolyn was part of a group of friends who met whenever we could get together in Marion. We called ourselves "great girlfriends" and she certainly was. She was always there whenever we needed her and she will be truly missed.

I'm so very sorry for your loss.  I knew Carolyn from working with her at the Cardinal.  She is one of the sweetest, funniest women I know.  I love her a lot.  We used to talk during breaks in the produce room and we always ended up laughing.  She sent me a framed collage of pictures of me and my Momma.  It's something I cherish.  She was so very thoughtful.  The world isn't going to be as bright without her smile.
