We loved Carolyn the moment we met her at Welcome Baptist. She was always so kind and encouraging to us. She had such a sweet spirit and was very courageous through her illness. She was a person who showrd appreciation for even the smallest of deeds done for her. It broke our heart to see on fb she had passed, but what may appear as a battle lost here on earth is actually a victory won. She has gained!! She has received from Her Heavenly Father what we all look forward someday to achieve. However, she will certainly be missed here by all the ones who were blessed to have known her. Our prayers are with the family as you go through today and the days to come. May Jesus hold you close. May sweet memories comfort you.
With love and sincere sympathy Roger and Pat Burden

Dear Family, We were so sorry to hear of Carolyns passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Carolyn was such sweet lady. It was a pleasure to have her in our church. She fought the battle with cancer with grace and dignity. Now shes with her Lord. May God bless you with his peace. Ken and Linda Frazier.
