Am so sorry and sad to hear of Carolyn's passing. I got to know Carolyn at Nye Legacy when visiting my Mom. She was really a joy to talk to and a very sweet and caring person to my Mom and to all. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. Karen Costello

Carolyn was a dear friend to our family, and exceptionally close with my mom. We have many happy memories of the Anderson family visiting our farm, or of us visiting your farm. It was a tradition to spend the 4th of July together!
I have a fond Carolyn memory, of Carolyn taking a babysitting job to watch five year old Julie and I, while the rest of the family went on vacation. I remember having a fun time on our 'vacation' at the Anderson farm, and enjoying great food! We really had fun making a mud pie in the middle of the lawn, which showed that Carolyn had a lot of patience and would put up anything to help out a friend!
She is a beautiful woman, inside and out. Our mom took us to visit her, whenever should could, and I know my name is in her famous guest book. What a privilege it is to be, in that guest book. Bless you all.

Carolyn was a friend to my mom while my mom was at Nye Legacy. Carolyn was a delight to talk too. I visited my mom every Saturday and brought treats in and always included Carolyn. Carolyn told me many stories about her life and I always enjoyed her conversation. I am saddened to hear of her passing. She was a sweet person! I send my sympathies to her family!
