My sisters, Robin Freshour and Misti Pleasant, and I are so sorry for your loss. Carolyn was such a special friend to our parents Richard and Norma Elliott!

So sorry to hear of Carolyn's passing. We went to school together in Bunker Hill, and the last time we spent time together was at the Alumni Banquet in April. Will miss seeing her there.
We were on vacation and just returned home on Monday. I read it in the Gazette News.
Please know you have my sympathy.

So sorry to hear of Carolyn's passing. Please accept my sympathy. She and I went to school together in Bunker Hill, in fact the last time we spent time together was at the Alumni Banquet in April. I will miss seeing her.
