  1. You will be missed greatly by many.. Carolyn and you opened your home and your hearts to me as a teenager… Words can not really express how appreciative I am..

  2. Our deepest sympathies and prayers to the family of this very nice man whom I clearly remember as a substitute teacher and also from his hospitality in having me over at his home while working on a class project with his son. May God be your comfort during this very tough time.
