    I never remember Carolyn without a smile on her face and that contagious giggle. She was always so full of love, every since I can remember. Her family is proof of that. I am so sorry for your and our loss. Although her passing is so untimely, the love that she had for life and everyone in it will live on forever. A prayer that time passes quickly, that all wounds are healed and that hearts engorged with love and warm smiles are the only feelings felt.

    While I did not know Carolyn on a personal level, I did have the most unique opportunity of having photographed her at Global Fest 2010 in Glasgow and observe her vitality for life while she was dancing with some children there. That picture will always stand out in my mind as one of my favorites. I am glad she had the opportunity of seeing those pictures and hopefully they brought her some lovely memories of a day she was enjoying. My heart goes out to each member of her family…may God wrap His loving arms around each of you and hold you close to Him and give you comfort is my prayer for you. What a wonderful spirit she displayed that day!!!
