I don't know what to say.... I've lived next door to Carolyn since I was 2 years old. She was always smiling and never had a harsh word to say. She was the best neighbor anyone could have asked for.

Chuck, Joni, Linda and families ... my sincere condolences are with you and your families. Accept my hug from down here and know that your mom is smiling down on all of you.
