    Carolyn was such an influential adult-figure in my youth. She supported me in so many of my high school, college and horse pursuits.

    She was good to the whole Ruzanski family, and we loved her dearly.

    I still have a cherished crystal vase she gave me 29 years ago–a tribute to her generosity and caring.

    My deepest sympathy in losing an amazing lady.
