My condolences go out to the family of Carolyn Matheney. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Special condolences go out to 2 of my dearest friends Pam Christine and Christy Daughtery Always remember the precious and good memories you ladies had with your Mom. She was a good lady. We used to play Bingo together at the Eagles several years ago. Just remember that she is in no more pain and is in a better place. She is back with her husband, Roy and the rest of her family that have gone before her. Carolyn will always be remembered.
