So sorry to hear your loss of Carolyn. We Almacks were country neighbors & friends. Used to babysit for her children. My first job in the healthcare field was at Dickey's Nursing Home under Carolyn. I would forget to get something for a patient & would have to go back to get it and she would say "Your feet make up for what your mind forgets." Many good memories! Love and prayers to all her family! Regina (Almack) & Tim Culbertson

I am so sorry to learn of Carolyn's passing. I always enjoyed talking to her. I enjoyed her wonderful hospitality at the B & B with some of my friends. My Uncle Dick stayed with her several times & thoroughly enjoyed the time they spent talking & laughing together. We had many connections through DeDe, who was a friend of my Father, & was engaged to my Aunt Mary Ellen.My condolences to all Carolyn's Family.
