What a blessing this beautiful lady was while on her journey. She meant so much to so many and will be an inspiration to others for many years to come.

She will be missed by her whole family but now we have an angel singing and praying for us in heaven until we can see her again.
She went out of her way to make my wedding day special when I couldn’t do it for myself and I will always remember her fondly for that. Her grandchildren will miss her but we won’t let them forget her because of the many good stories we will tell about her. Peace be with you mom until we see you again.

I didn't personally know Carolyn but she and "Poppy" clearly hold a very special place in April's heart and that's enough for me. May you all be lifted up during your time of mourning. Rest easy knowing that she is at peace now, Her soul renewed, and watching over her precious family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during these trying times. May you be wrapped in comfort and inundated in love.

With All of Our Condolences,
The Stone Family

God gained a beautiful soul that had shared so much love. Family was everything to her and im glad i was able to know her even if it was just for a brief moment. In that moment she made me feel like one of her own and i will never forget that. Rest easy and fly high with the angels 💜.
