Though I never got to know her, we were cousins by marriage. Prayers for the family.

Great memories of Mrs. Lackey as a neighbor as a kid. I am sorry for your loss. I know my mom loved her, too, and enjoyed church time together.

Derek Cunningham

Deepest sympathies to the family. Carolyn was adored and valued as a member of the USAHEC volunteers. She made a direct contribution to the telling of the story of the US Army and thus the Nation. We have truly missed her and offer our sincere condolences.

When Frank & I started doing genealogy we started in Carlisle. So glad we did. Carol came a long way with us. She bent over backwards to help us every time we came in there. She was one great lady and she really knew her stuff. We learned a lot from her. Will miss her.

 I will miss my mom so much.  I learned a lot from her..cooking, sewing, gardening, decorating, helping the church and having a faith in the Lord Jesus Christ...she was the biggest prayer warrior...always there...her personality lit up a room.
Your Mom accomplished some wonderful things in her lifetime in addition to marriage and raising children. I enjoyed reading her accomplishments. It really is so very hard to lose your Mother but what a blessing you all were to her. May the Lord comfort you all greatly now and in the days (times)ahead.  Love,
 The Alspaughs

When I shared with mom about your mother's passing she said, "dear sweet Carolyn".

I would see your mom from time to time while living in Carlisle. She was so faithful in bringing a poinsetta for our mom. It was always right after Thanksgiving. She would stay and chat for some time. Not to long and not to short. On one occasion as I was seeing her to her car she turned and expressed her appreciation that she came to know our Lord and Savior while attending the neighborhood womens Bible study on Longs Gap Road.

Rest assured she is singing a new song as we remember her life!
