    I send you all my love and prayers for peace and rest at this time. I have wonderful memories of Carolyn when she would come and visit our classroom. May God bless you all and praise God for the wonderful memories that you all share as a family.

    I did not know Carolyn and am not related to the Kendalls. I am sure many members of ESA did know her. As State Chaplin I want to extend sympathy to her family on behalf of Missouri Epsilon Sigma Alpha.
