    To The Harris Family,
    We are deeply saddened for the lost of Ms. Carolyn. She was a beautiful person. She was full of personality and kept all of us laughing. She was the life of the party and kept it real with you too. She was like family to us and I remember she lived next door to my family on 4th Street. Those were the good times back then. She is loved by many. She will always be in our hearts. She is now resting peacefully and watching over her family. We as the Bramlett Family will keep the Harris Family in prayer.

    To the Harris Family:
    Deepest sympathy in the passing of Carolyn. I am a first cousin. My grandfather and Carolyn’s grandfather were brothers. My name is Sandra Harris Peery. I live in Tazewell, Virginia. Carolyn, Caralee, and I played together as youngsters. It has been many years since we have seen each other, but from her picture, she hasn’t changed. May God comfort all of you.
