So sorry to hear about Carolyn. I worked with her at Levering Hospital many years ago. Also enjoyed visiting with her & Elbert at Hardees.

I am so sorry for the Willett family loss. Carolyn was a kind, caring, and compassionate person. She accepted me into her family at a time when most families would have turned the other cheek, and they accepted me as they did for their own son. I wasn't the greatest person back in those days. But, as most people do i grew up and came to understand i had my own set of problems, as well as issues I had back then that I needed to face... that I too was imperfect. However, the Willett's accepted me unconditionally. As such, am greatful especially because at the time i didnt have much of a family I could call my own.
The years have past. But, every Christmas i go to their son's grave and reflect
on his life. And place something on his grave to remember him. That was something he and i discussed prior to his passing. He said, " will you forget me?" the simple fact is i can not, and will not. Sometimes i wonder who he would be today. Or, why him instead of me?
Now i have 3 people to remember, a son, a father, a mother.......
