Only God could have created such a beautiful heart. Carolyn, so dedicated,sweet and loving. How does a sister put into comforting words the heartache she feels for her beloved brother. Lean on God now, Frankie, to endure, to keep Carolyn's precious memory alive, and to to comfort those who were part of her, for she has left them in your care. Carolyn, my dear sister-in-law, pray for us. Sister, Rosemary.
