Love you Gran! You will always be on my mind and in my heart. Say Hi to Pappy for me....

We are saddened to hear the news of Carolyn's passing. She was our mother's roommate at Green Ridge and as we visited every night we became good friends. We continued to visit Carolyn once a week after our mother passed in 2013. Se was a blessing and a joy and we will miss her very much but we know she is in a much better place and able to breathe perfectly. We love you Carol.
