Robert’s love for his wife Carolyn is poignantly evident in the story of her life on our “Wall of Life.” Her tissue donation helped 41 other people. Robert writes:
Carolyn was a daughter, sister, wife, grandmother, aunt, sister-in-law, cousin, friend, athlete, housekeeper, cook, secretary, caregiver and devout Catholic.
She was the oldest of two children born to Gilbert and Mary in the coal country of central Pennsylvania, a coal miner’s daughter who with her family, migrated to Ohio at the age of four. As the coal mines began to slow down, her parents sought more steady work. Factories in the Midwest were expanding as our country entered World War II.
For many of us, Facebook allows us to keep in touch with family and friends all over the world. We share photos of our kids and grandkids, links to websites we like, funny videos, and details about our daily lives.
