Dear Howell Family,
I was so very saddened to hear that my Dear Friend Carolyn had passed. She was one of the very finest and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Over the years, it was always a blessing to work with Carolyn in preparing annual church budgets or other financial matters. She was always there as a humble source of insightful Godly wisdom.
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Beverly and I pray the Lord will give you peace and comfort during this time. May God also bless and strengthen each of you in the days and weeks to come.
