    We all have fond memories of Carolyn. We were often with her and her family as children and as adults. Loved her laugh and sense of humor. An awesome person to be part of our “village” as we grew up. Such a wonderful friend to Orval and Margaret, even when they were miles apart. Orval enjoyed their talks over the past few years. We will miss her, happy she is at peace. Tall all those who loved her too, we wish you peace. Love and Hugs, Orval, Rox and Lee, Eva and Glenn, Tom and Cindy, Will and Jenny, Katie and BJ
