I was so sorry to hear about Caroline. She was always so nice and professional in our real estate transactions. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. We are sending a donation today in her honor to Thomas/McMahan Cancer Foundation. God Bless.

Wayne, It was with great sadness that late last night we learned of Caroline's passing. So many years ago, you and she received us into your home and listened to our hopes for our future. We cherish that memory. We are praying for you both. Robert and Augusta Elmwood

Dear Wayne and Michelle, Although I am unable to attend Kari's memorial service today, I want to let you both know that my thoughts and love are with you today and always. You know Wayne, that Kari and I shared a special bond over the years because of her dear brother Babe. She was very dear to me and because of the two of you, I have very special memories of that time we all spent together with Tony. Kari

Wayne, Your "Angel" is at peace. Your "Angel" loves you so much. Caroline was such a special person. She was so brave, fought the good fight. She never complained. She could always make me laugh. She loved a good laugh, & as a lady of many talents, her gifts came out in her pieces of art. Caroline will be missed by her many friends (especially, me). I will keep you both in my prayers.
God bless you both.

Fifty years of friendship, memories of our youth, coming to New York to live with our new stewardess friends, learning to do the twist at the fabulous Peppermint Lounge, lots of laughs, meeting our future husbands,staying in touch all these years, wonderful reunions in New York, Vegas, New Orleans, Savannah and DC. We really do believe that no one ever dies until they are forgotten and once you knew Kari you could never forget her. She will live forever in our memories and our hearts.
With much love to Wayne, Michelle and Blake.
