AND BE GLAD!
Our most graceful fairy has gone home, a mother, sister,
friend, teacher, wife, these words are not enough. Never
have I known someone to touch so many in such a positive
way. The out pouring of love could not be contained, not
by her or the people who knew her. When we talk of her,
share memories of her, celebrate her, she is there and always
will be. When we need her guidance, strength and love her
words will come to us. She is everywhere and a piece of
her in all of us. Remember her, we will see her again.

My first memory of Carolyn was when mom and dad brought
her home from the hospital. It was love at first sight.
There wasn’t a lot of room so Mary, Carolyn and I
slept in the same bed. I remember that Carolyn always held
on to my hand until she fell asleep. She was always the
sweetest child, never cried unless she was hurt and was
always thoughtful of others. Carolyn had the gift of love
for everyone and I can never remember one cross word from
her. She was the most trusting and generous person I ever
knew. She was always looking for some way to give, share,
or spread love.
She was baptized at the age of 13 by me into The Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She graduated from
LDS Seminary at Corona, California High School.
Carolyn had a very happy childhood never ceasing to look
for the good in people and to help whenever and wherever
she could. She had more life long friends than anyone I
Carolyn we miss you, love you and look forward to the day
we can all be together once more.

Carolyn was a diamond among people. One of the most precious
souls ever put on this earth. Carolyn had the ability not
only to make friends but to hold those relationships close
for all eternity. She was a wonderful sister and expressed
genuine love to everyone whether she knew them or not. I
was blessed to have her chosen for my sister.
