    Larry, I am so sorry to hear that your mom passed this past Sat. I remember her a most gracious and loving person, always welcoming me into their home. She was a great cook and drove the wheels off of their Oldsmobile. You can rest assured that she is with Jesus and with your dad now; where she there is no more pain or suffering. Take care in this time adjustment. Gary

    To the children of Carolyn and Ed Dunmore, Thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of your mother's passing into new life. My aunt and uncle lived next to her and your dad on Center Court. She was so very gracious and kind to them - the best of neighbors! Peace! Sr. Marilyn

    I had tried to sign this guest book last week. So sad to hear of Carolyn's passing. I enjoyed talking to her by phone many times over the years. She was very special to me, and I will always keep her close to my heart.
