My mother, Erma Klinger, worked with Carolyn at the "Dairy" in West Union years ago so I have heard many wonderful stories about their experiences taking care of the customers at the Humphrey Cafe. Mom liked to work with Carolyn because of her good work ethic and the special friendship they had together. My sympathy to the Patrick family.

All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Carolyn will be deeply missed. We used to have so much fun with her when we were growing up.....decorating the Christmas tree in July, getting a early snow day from school beacause there were flurries in the sky and listing to Phil Collins in the basement at Cynthia's house. I'll never forget those times and just thinking of them brings a smile to my face. Carolyn truly touched my life.
