As her eldest son , besides the latest of memory’s of her passion with the shelties and her faith – I also have great childhood memories going back to when she was only in her late 20s and the good times as a little boy!! 
From summer school vacation – joking around in kitchen as she made dinner – doing my chores before heading off on a bike hike or dirt bike woods ride and bag packed lunch to take with me — asking her questions about everything in the world ,as kids 7 to 10 do .. Words of wisdom on so many things. Memory’s of Mom in 1960s to 1970s as a Awesome Mom!  I could go on and on !  Now as that strong sweet Soul has passed on to the other side and new life ,void of pain , where we shall see that compassionate , giving ,faithful Soul ,that I know as ” Mom” .again .
Your the best ! Love you .

Hello family in PA…
I am very sorry for your loss. I am so pleased and honored I got to meet Carolyn when she was in Buffalo a couple years ago. Our trip to Niagara Falls will forever be a fond memory of mine. Although we only spent a short time together I could tell what a beautiful soul she was. My sincere condolences. Rest in peace 🙏
