To Carolyn Watson's Family,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       I'm very sorry to have read of the death of your mother/grandmother. Such times are very difficult but family, friends, and faith can make it somewhat easier. I have found that the help that God supplies does make a difference. It does not eliminate the pain, but it can make it easier to bear. Tears will still come and you will never forget Carolyn, but as you recover you will be able to use your loss as a means to help others cope with a similar experience. I have found the text at 2Corinthians 1:3,4 comforting. In part it tells us that God, ".... the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation." May that be so for you and your family.                                With heartfelt sympathy,  Shelly Bibler

I had the pleasure of getting to know Carolyn when I worked at the Manor House.  She always smiled for me and really enjoyed talking to her as I worked with her.  Please accept my sympathies.

Chris and family,
It was a pleasure to know your mom (and grandma).  She was so gracious, appreciative and patient with all of us during her time at Manor House...and so proud of her family.  My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss.
