My sweet cousin Carolyn. I remember you mainly when we were children. You were "older" by 2 years. Always a sweetheart and kind to everyone. I re-met you when we were in our late sixties. The same beautiful person!
May God take you to heaven with the utmost speed!
Love and God bless all.
Joanne Gaudette Tomerlin ( Edward and Cleo's daughter)
