  3. I’m very sorry for your loss. Carolyn was a special woman who loved her family & close friends deeply. She fondly talked to me about Amanda, Tim, Susie, her sister, as well as her mother & husband Pat. I worked with Carolyn at Canada Post in St. Albert & Depot 2 in Edmonton for several years. She was always the first person in the depot to help anyone who needed it whether they be a new postie or a colleague she knew well. When someone needed a shoulder to cry on or a hug she was first to provide it. It was great spending time with Carolyn over the years & sharing in her laughter & zest for life. I’m glad I had the opportunity to have Carolyn in my life for the time I did. I will miss her greatly. Much love to her family.

  4. I only knew Carolyn for a short period of time, but she has left a mark on my heart. So sorry to hear of her passing but glad that she is not suffering any longer. Many hugs to her family! xx
