So sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of getting to know Carolyn when her father was in the nursing home in Danville. She was such an attentive daughter, one could only hope that they had a family member as concerned and caring as Carolyn. You get to know the families of your residents while caring for their loved ones and Carlolyn was an unforgettable force that I will always remember. I’m certain that she has earned her place in Heaven and is surrounded by loved ones passed. I am also quite certain that she will help keep the heavens running smoothly and have everything in its place. God has surely found His organizer. God bless, Diana
