    Carolyn, over 35 years ago your best advice to me was to slow down. Now that I am older and have slowed down I wish that I could tell you how wise your advice was.

    I genuinely regret your loss. I hope that in due time your family receives God’s peace that excels all thought, so that it will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. God is called the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. Rest assured that God cares for all his creatures and he would never bring us suffering. A soothing scripture I like is Psalm 34:18 which reads: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” He promised that in the Paradise, we will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all problems, accidents, and sickness. Even our dead loved ones like Carolyn will be resurrected. (Psalm 37:9, 29; John 5:28, 29) With all my sympathy.

    There are so many wonderful things to say about Carolyn. I feel so honored to have known her and spent so many good times with her at IBM and learned a lot from her about life. In addition my children grew up under her watchful eye and loved her too. Crystal, my thoughts are with you. Your mom was truly a wonderful person who will be missed.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. Please know that Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted.(Psalm 34:18) the bible also says that He will do away with pain and death. (Revelation 21: 3,4) I hope these scriptures will provide comfort and hope.

    And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4 Carolyn was a jewel, she will be missed. Sherry you did a great job in multi tasking with the help of God.

    I am so sorry for your loss -- for everyone's loss! I worked with Carolyn for many years at the IBM-Charlotte office and found her to be the 'foundation' of the office. She new every job and everything that needed to be done and got it done promptly. We all depended on her for so much and she never failed to keep on top of everything. I'm blessed to have known her and I will miss her...

    As a new trainee coming into the IBM Branch I saw Carolyn as a 'mother-figure' that kept the office together and running . I'm reminded of her smile and kind and helpful spirit. I know that she is present with the Lord. Sending prayers of peace and comfort to the family.

    Death is like sleep in that the dead are unconscious and cannot do anything. However, the Creator of life can bring the dead back by means of a resurrection. In proof of that, Jehovah empowered Jesus to raise several dead people to
