I was so sorry and shocked to hear about cousin Carolynn's passing. She was always so kind and happy with everyone. We were both bright blondes growing up, and I thought she was beautiful when I was a youngster. She was the oldest cousin and I was the youngest. I was just thinking of her the other day. I am saddened and will miss her. Bless her memory. SWH
