Mama will be incredibly missed and I’m so very thankful for her always making me feel so welcomed and loved. I just know Leon was waiting at heavens gates with a bouquet of yellow roses for her. Sending love to all friends and family.

  24. Carolyn and I were classmates and friends throughout our 12 years of school together. We were in the 1965 graduating class from Elise, which was the last class to graduate from that school.

May the Good Lord comfort the broken hearts of her precious family.
