  1. Carolyn,
    You will be missed. You were more like a friend than Scott’s mom. I’ll miss playing cards. I’ll miss watching you dye the dog purple. I’ll miss all your cute collectibles. I’ll miss the way you looked on the ironing board in that avant Gard play with the Impys! I will miss your laugh. I will miss your chicken and noodles the absolute best! I will miss holiday dinners at your home on Abriendo. I’ll miss watching Women of Cell Block H. I’ll miss selling Avon with you. I’ll miss being in all your summer place! But I really should’ve gotten the part of grandma in Slewfoot Sue! I’ll miss you teaching me all the things my parents wouldn’t! I’ll miss talking jewelry and makeup. I’ll miss sitting in the front porch glider. I’ll miss talking smack about you son! But most of all I’ll miss your laugh. Certainly gone too soon but there was a lot of life love and laughter in your 75 years. Missing you, Neva Ann
