    I was so sorry to learn of Carolyn’s passing today 6/2/15 She was my sweet friend
    in my high school years and saw her again after she had Courtney. There simply isn’t a
    sweeter person on earth as she was. Even back then she called everyone Sug.
    She always made me laugh. Back then she loved the Beetles music and would
    sing along with them. I’ve missed seeing her for a long time and I’m so sad to learn
    of her passing. She was the most caring person so I know we’ll see her again in heaven.
    God bless and comfort her family.
