    I just found out about Carolyn. It’s too late for me to go to the funeral. I’m so sorry to hear about this. I know Carolyn was a loving family person. Although we didn’t keep up with each other she I thought about her. I know she’s with her mother and father in heaven. Family stay together and help each other. Barbara (Thompson) Keller

    I knew your mom by the name Aunt Carol. She was my favorite Aunt. She was the one who always sent birthday presents and Christmas presents. Later on, it was graduation gifts, wedding gifts and baby gifts. I loved her smile and still remember her warm embrace. She welcomed my family (my mom and dad and us 5 kids) into her home whenever we came to Evansville to visit family. I now realize it was a lot to take on, but she did it with love. Take good care and know that Carol will always be remembered with love.
