  4. I have fond memories of Caroline. She worked down the hall with my Sister-in-Law, Marilyn Parker. My Husband R.L. and I moved to Clayton County in late 1974. Caroline invited me to church at Clayton Community. I went in January 1975, and got saved the first visit. It has made a radical difference in my life. And, I will be forever grateful to Caroline. Blessings to your family. Love & prayers.
