    Dear Steve,
    Mary Beth has been keeping me informed about Carolyn. I loved her so much and considered her a dear forever friend. Please accept my condolences. I have nothing profound to say, not that it would help take away your pain. Much love to you. You continue to be in my prayers always.

    I will always remember Carolyn as a nurse that went way beyond her duties; but mostly, I will remember her inspirations during our Bible Studies and walks. My deepest condolences, Dr. Laffey.

    I knew Carolyn when I worked night shift in Radiology and I found her to be an excellent nurse and a very good friend. She and I volunteered to work on a disaster mobile unit, but unfortunately, we never got to go, due to no fault of our own. I also knew Dr. Laffey when I worked with both of them at the hospital. I am so sorry for the loss of Carolyn, and send my condolences to him.

    I was deeply saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. She had the biggest heart and touched everyone whose path she crossed. Although we hadn’t seen each other for many years, she remained in my heart. My sincerest condolences to her husband, Stephen & her sister Joan.
