Acie, in the sadness of the loss of Carolyn, may caring thoughts surround you and your family.We will remember Carolyn's good nature and the times we spent visiting while we were in Batesville for the Scottish festival and a couple of times out at Ronnie's. We also have good memories of visiting with you both on several occasions.Due to the virus, we won't be attending the visitation. We hope you understand. We are thinking of you and your family, and wishing you peace and comfort.
We met Carolyn several years ago when we attended the Scottish Festival in Batesville. She would come to our hotel to meet up with our group the night before the festival, and she always brought those wonderful Spring Rolls. She was definitely a special lady.
Sorry for your lossWent to school with AcieSincere sympathy Paula Roddy Cooper)Sue Campbell Etta McSparren
I've known Carolyn since She and Acie, my brother, married. I've eaten many suppers that she cooked. I think we ever ate out. She was such a good cook that we just expected that she would cook. She was kind, considerate and sensitive to the needs of others. I believe that angels are made from people such she is. Rest peacefully Carolyn. Know that you were loved deeply.
