    I am devastated to learn of Carolyn”s passing and my heart is hurting for such a loss of a good friend. Hugs and prayers to Eddie and the Wicker family as well to all who knew her.

  2. I remember Caroline, as well as Eddie, both as happy fun loving people. I remember Caroline as a giggly fun person, The last time I saw her she and Eddie met with me about 14 years ago she was still enjoyable to talk to. She reminded me of the time, while we were still in high school and at Enfield Teen Town that Eddie and Caroline, Ruth Ann and I, went to the Goodie Goodie drive in restaurant. Caroline remembered it well and I remember her as being, sort of “bubbly”, happy, and enjoying every minute. Caroline was a great person and I am sure she will be missed by all.

    My sympathy to Eddie and all of her family and friends.

    My heart is broken to hear about Carolyn’s death. So sorry for your families loss. Carolyn and I loved to ride bikes until our legs could do no more during our growing up years. Such great memories. She was my mom’s hairdresser for many years and mom loved talking with her as well as a great weekly “do”.
