    Carolyn was such a dear, dear friend to my late mother, Eilene Boettcher! My mother would look forward to every interaction with Carolyn (and Bob) be it in person or on the phone. Monthly lunch dates with Carolyn, Kay Ogle, and Eilene were true EVENTS! I am so grateful to have met both Carolyn and Bob during my visits to Omaha. I am thankful for the joy they brought to both my parents. May Carolyn rest in peace and be freed of earthly suffering. She was a kind and gracious woman. I know she will be missed by Bob and her family. I send my sympathy and prayers to each of you.
