Aunt Carolyn,

I will truly miss you. I love you sooo much. You will truly be missed. I know the angels were rejoicing to receive such a beautiful lady. You had a heart of gold. I remember coming to your house and visiting and you giving me words of wisdom. I remember trick or treating and you and uncle Edward gave me a carrot. I was crying and you gave me a big beautiful jar of m&ms. I know my grandparents, aunts and uncle were glad to see you. May you rest in love. I know God has restored your health and body. You were a great example of a Godly Christian woman. I love you Uncle Edward, Elwanda and Karen. I’m praying for all of you.

Love your niece

Aunt Carolyn:

You will be truly missed. You were a wonderful sister to my late mom, Bettie Scarsdale. and I know she truly enjoyed sharing Thanksgiving dinner with you. My thoughts are with Uncle Edward, your children and their families as I know your passing has left a hole in their hearts. Yet they shall see you again, free of the infirmities you have so bravely battled.

Your Nephew
