  1. My deepest sympathies and prayers to your entire family. I always enjoyed talking to your mom at the softball games way back when. God bless you all

  2. My Aunt Caroline was a wonderful person. I will miss her. There are so many memories of my aunt. Here is one of my fondest.
    When I was very young (elementary school) my mother became a single parent. It was a very rough and tough time in my families life. My mother was left alone to care for 3 kids. One day Auntie Caroline and Uncle Ray showed up at our apartment with bags of groceries. I know to them it was not anything big but to us it meant the world, we had food for the week. I remember Auntie making us a ham on one of those occasions, it was the best ham I ever tasted. I think they brought groceries to us several times.
    She was generous, kind, loving and always wanted to do things for everyone around her.
    She always welcomed you into her home with open arms and warm food.
    I have a very heavy heart because I can not be there to say bye. I will be doing that here in Alaska. When the sunsets Thursday night and I see that beatuiful pink sunset bouncing off the white mountains, I will know that is auntie on her way to heaven to watch over all of us.
    Rest in Peace Auntie Caroline, I love you.
