Iremember Carolyn working in Materials at Central Arkansas Hospital. I worked with Bernell and I also knew Carolyn's parents when they went to church at Crosby with my parents, Wayne and Catherine Anderson. I'm so sorry for your loss but know that she is not suffering.

Many thoughts and prayers for the Bland family during their time of loss. The Blands took care of my granddaughter from the time she was preschool until a couple of years ago. They treated her just like family and so grateful for all that they did for her. God be with you.

I have a lot of memories of Carolyn. When our babies were small, we spent many days rolling them down the street in their strollers. We drank lots of coffee together and Carolyn would always have sweets to accompany the coffee. She certainly will be missed. See you again someday my friend.
