Carolyn was a dear person who was very kind. She fed stray cats daily at her house. I am currently trapping them to be spayed/neutered. She was my momâ€™s good friend. They were on a bowling team when I was young. Sometimes I would keep score for them even though I am not good at math. All the ladies had a great time. Wonder if there are a couple bowling leagues in heaven?
So sorry to hear of Mrs Wilksâ€™ passing. She was such a sweet and kind lady.
Carolyn was one of my best friends and I will miss her so very much. We used to be at coffee everu Saturday morning together and communicated by telephone often, especially when there wre Razorback sports. She was an avid fan of U of Arkansas. Carolyn was so upbeat and friendly and I enjoyed bing with her. She was almost totally blind but manaaged to take everything in stride and never complalined about her conditiion. I loved her so much. She was about the onlly friend I had left of our generation. May her soul and the soul of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
So sorry to hear about Carolyn. She. was a joy to know. She will really be missed but I know Charles will be the first to welcome h
So sorry for your loss
