Lyrics from one of her favorite songs..

Whispering Pines


The snowflakes fall as winter comes

And time just seems to fly

Is it the loneliness in me that makes me want to cry

My heart is sad like a morning dove that’s lost its mate in flight

Hear the coooing of his lonely heart through the stillness of the night

Whispering pines, whispering pines, tell me is it so

Whispering pines, whispering pines, you’re the one who knows

My darlin’ is gone, ohh she’s gone

And I need your sympathy

Whispering pines send my baby back to me

See that squirrel up in the tree, his mate there on the ground

Hear their barking call of love, for the happiness they’ve found

Is my love still my love, ohh this I gotta know

Send the message by the wind, because I love her so

Please do not be sad but celebrate and give thanks for the true honor and privilege of having Carolyn in our lives and allowing us to be a part of hers.

Carolyn will be lovingly remembered and

sadly missed by her husband, Brian, and by her
