You have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. We were like sisters, you, Betty Swaim-Jordin and I. We are as close as cousins can get.
I love you and always will. You hold a place in my heart which no one else can fill. We had the best of times and sometimes we disagreed, but that never changed the love I have for you and you were quick to forgive.
You loved your job as a Cardiovascular Technician at San Gabriel Hospital in San Gabriel, CA.. (Carolyn was a hard worker and truly loved her job, patients and co-workers. She spoke of them often).
Carolyn moved to Porterville, CA, a short time after retirement and we spend a lot of time together, taking a trip to San Jose to see her grandson and his girlfriend, Amanda and then on to Reno, Virginia City and Tahoe, Nevada. Many more adventures followed. We spent time with our cousin Betty and her husband Chuck in Bakersfield, CA., visiting with them.
Most of all, you loved your family and friends. Your daughter Shannon was the apple of your eye. You were so proud of her and she always looked after her mother, making some trips to Porterville to see you.
You had a love and caring for all mankind.
Goodbye for now, my sweet cousin. I will see you in heaven sitting at the right hand of God.
Carolyn was a very giving person. She spent her money to make gifts for others. It's what pleased her and made her happy. She was talented in many ways, making crafts, crocheting and sewing. She took me shopping for material and made me a lap robe before she left California to live with her daughter Shannon, in Kentucky. The last time I saw her was in Porterville, CA at a lunch in her honor before she left.
I will miss Carolyn so much, but I know that she is now out of pain and with her Savior, and we will be reunited one day. Rest in peace my sweet cousin!
Thank you for the special memories - EVERY ONE WAS GOOD. You are a kind beautiful woman and you will be missed.
We will see each other again, but until then RIP my dear Aunt Carolyn <3
