    I’m am so saddened at the loss of your beautiful wife, daughter, sister and friend Carolyn. My fondest memory of her was when I had the pleasure of meeting her last summer at Tammy’s birthday party. Although I was new to meeting the family while dating Sean, she welcomed me with open arms. While talking we found out that we worked together at BWC. I would always run into her and she always had something positive to say along with her warm smile. Although I didn’t know her that long, you could tell that she was truly a woman of God. She truly shined with God’s Holy Spirit. Carolyn will definitely be missed….never forgotten by her BWC family! David, just remember that this is just a temporary thing and God promised that we would see our loved ones again (John 3:16). I definitely know your pain after losing my husband and bestfriend. Rely on Jehovah God and take each day as it comes, one day at a time. My prayers go out to you and the family.

  6. R.I.P. Carolyn, I will truly miss you my friend…..

    My sincere condolences to the Lane family. David, Carolyn spoke kindly of you often. God bless you for being such a loving husband.…. May God comfort you ALL in your time of sorrow. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    David and Family,

    My Sunshine is with the Lord in which she always sought direction and comfort.

    Her presence was captivating. Her spirit was honest and loving. Her frangrace is everlasting. I believe God gave me my friend during a time that was difficult to bring me light. I am so grateful that I had the time with her that I was blessed to have. I miss my Sunshines physical presence, but I take comfort in knowing she will always be with me.

    Take care family.

  11. My name is Kerri Vawters and I want to offer my deepest sympathy for your loss. I knew Carolyn from our friend and Lymphedema Specialist Celler O’Toole. To me, Carolyn had a beautiful sweet soul that will truly be missed here on Earth. I know she is free now to fly amongst Heaven spreading joy and happiness to those who remember her here as well as those the Lord wants her to touch quietly in their hearts so they may smile knowing they have been touched by an Angel.
