|I was so sad to hear Carolyn had passed. Having
taught Camie last year, I had the pleasure of
getting to know her. She always had a smile and
some sort of dessert for me. I always enjoyed
spending time talking with her and hearing her
wisdom of years of teaching. She will be dearly
missed. May God bless your family during this
