    My sincerest sympathies for the her family and friends. I remember my mom talking about her adoption and how much her mom and dad wanted her. Mom said that they were so happy when they finally got her home. They dressed her in the finest clothes. She was loved.

    I know that Carolyn “Cuz” held a special place in the hearts of her cousins Dale Vanderstelt and Trudy Vanderstelt Kroll who were close to her age. Lots of childhood memories. My love and prayers to Jim and Fran and their families.

    I’m, shocked and saddened to hear that Carolyn passed away. It seems like yesterday that she was spending a week at the farm riding Garaway. She was the only person that could handle that fat little stubborn horse. My condolences to her brothers, Fran and Jim.
