  4. I met Carolyn when we moved here in 1966. I was so impressed hearing that I was meeting a past homecoming queen for Clear Creek High School. Through the years I loved being close to her as our families would gather for events. She always had such a twinkle in her eyes as she smiled, which was most of the time. I dearly loved this beautiful woman. I will really miss her.
