When I first saw this announcement, I didn't recognize the name, but there was no mistaking that face - that pretty face that could light up a room without even trying. It flashed me back to your house in Barre, my first encounters with all of you, and - in retrospect - what a rough time that must have been all around. She did one heck of a job with all of you back then all on her own and here you are now as proud testimony to that. Such a long time ago and yesterday all at the same time.
My heart goes out to all of you, Carolyn, Newell, Donald, and Linda. May God rest her soul and comfort all of you left to miss her so. I didn't know you, Harry, but I know you were a source of great joy to her and the love you brought into her life made her whole. God bless you all and give you strength.
Condolences from the Westlund family!
