Kerrie and I extend our heartfelt condolences to the Bush family on the loss of Carolyn. She was part of that greatest generation of Americans who, when asked, humbly shared her stories about life during the war. I will always remember those conversations in addition to her warm spirit and gentle smile. She has departed the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God!
