Aunt Carolyn was one of the kindest, funniest Christian woman Ive ever known. I hate that her last couple of years had to be so painful for her. When visiting her, she always had the best food and great stories to tell. Oh how Ill miss you so very much. Thank you for the memories youve given me. Its such an honor to know you and have you as my Aunt Carolyn. Happy that you are no longer in pain and with your love ones. Love and will miss you forever.
