  1. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom, Steve. My condolences and prayers are with you and your family at this time.

  2. Stacy, Steve & Family: Was so sorry to hear of Carolyn’s passing, but feel she is once again sharing with John & is home with God & sharing in His love. Carolyn was a wonderful & loving mother & wife, and a great & good person overall. She made some beautiful cakes, was a terrific cook, loved to visit & welcomed many to her home. She loved her kids & loved spending time with them & her grandkids; and, she was always ready to help whether it be for family or community. I know you all will miss her terribly, but I also feel you did not want her to suffer. Treasure your memories until you again share time in Heaven. Hugs to all. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. I know she would for me if circumstances had called for it. Hugs, June

  3. Steve,

    I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I enjoyed working with her when we both worked for the local newspapers. I also remember the beautiful cakes she made for me. Prayers to you and the family.

  4. Steve, Stacy, Joyce, Beverly and families. Prayers and special thoughts to the entire family. Our lives were certainly enriched knowing Carolyn.

  5. My deepest sympathy to each of you for your loss. Our heavenly Father is the Source of life. He gives life to all . By means of the resurrection he assures us that he will restore life to many who have fallen asleep in death.

    Psalms 36:9
    Acts 17:24
    John 5:28,29

  6. Dear Steve and Family, I didn’t know Carolyn for very long but we had a short, little connection. I enjoyed our visit when I came to do her paperwork.
    Sunday dinners will be hard for awhile. Just remember the good and the person she was.
    She sounded like she had a good life and she was a good, caring person.
