I babysat for Angie and Jeff when I was in high school and knew Carolyn through our church, Lawrence Christian Church. Your mother was such a loving, gentle soul. I am so sorry to learn of her passing, but I know we have the hope of being reunited one day with Jesus. My prayers are with your family. Candy (Jenkins) Allen
