    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was always so sweet and kind to me. She treated me like one of her own. I guess I was there so much she thought I was! Know that the entire family is in mine and Brenda’s thoughts and prayers.

  5. Dear family,
    Carolyn was a roommate of my grandmothers several years ago, and that is how I became a friend
    of her. She was so sweet. I would
    visit her when she would be at
    St. Joseph Hospital. But she was
    moved to a different nursing home when she was discharged from one of her stay and I lost contact with her. I have thought
    of her many days.
    May God bless you all in this
    sadden time.
