I've known Mrs Carolyn since I was a little girl & I thought alot of her. We worked together for awhile at the Corner Pantry in Union Point,Ga. I saw her last at the memorial service at Bethesda Baptist Church. They were honoring Larry Worthen. I'm so thankful that I waited & got a chance to talk to Mrs Carolyn. You just never know... My thoughts & prayers go out to the family. She will be greatly missed by many. Just keep your faith & remember you will see her again. Praying For You All, Laurie Smith Harris
