I am so sorry to hear of Carolyn's passing. Carolyn, was from our old neighborhood (N. Williams St) and we were all raised up together along with some of her cousins. The early part of her life wasn't the best for a young girl but she always seem to make the best of any situation as much as she could. Friday nights were spent with her mom Rosemary, her brother Terry, my mom Bonnie, and brothers going for a ride, sometimes around Newark and sometimes to Hebron for an ice cream cone at Cummings. I wish to offer my condolences to the family. I know she will be sadly missed until we all meet again in a much better place. God Bless
