Carolyn was a beautiful soul with a heart of gold! She will be truly missed! My condolences to her family and all of the people who were blessed to have known her! Prayers of comfort during this difficult time!
Carolyn was so kind to me as I was caregiving for our mutual friend John, always checking to see if she could help us out with our struggles, and going out of her way to give us a hug at Open Door Community Church whenever she was there. I’ll always remember her generosity and love for John. My thoughts and prayers go with all who loved her and we will miss her together.
I am so sorry to read that Carolyn passed away. She and I became friends via of an Open House one Sunday, when I was a Realtor at McKay Properties back in early 2000’s. She and I bonded quickly because I was just beginning to battle (as it turned out), the same vocal cord disorder (Spasmodic Dysphonia) that she had struggled with. She was able to overcome hers for the most part so that she had a more normal voice, but I wound up “UAMS incurable” and accepted my weak whispery voice as in “it is what it is.” Thanks to another client/friend’s quick thinking, my new moniker became “The House Whisperer”. I knew there was someone else who understood how painful the loss of one’s voice is. I admired her. . . She was very kind. Rest in peace,Carolyn .
I was so shocked to hear about Carolyn. I have known Carolyn from our school years at Rose Bud. Carolyn was 3-4 years ahead of me in school, she was always so nice and kind to me and others. May God comfort Carolyn family and friends.
Carolyn was a lovely neighbor. Her and my mom had been neighbors for years. They enjoyed eating out from time to time. Checking in on each other was often done. Carolyn will truly be missed. Rest In Peace Carolyn❤️
