To Aunt Carylon's Family:
Although I had the privilege to meet her only once last summer, she made a huge impact on me with her loving open heart, kindness and grace. I had previously heard so many wonderful things about her from LC. She truly made a difference for many and I know she will be dearly missed. What a sweet angel Heaven has received! Prayers and love to you all.
