I am so sorry that I missed the service. I just learned about Carolines passing this morning. John, you and Caroline were always smiling. I remember, fondly, how no matter what events took place, you both had such a terrific way of handling the situation. My Mom and Dad, Danny & Anne Grabarczyk, held you close in their heart as dear friends during my childhood and our years in Liberty Center. Even after all these years later, one of my fondest memories was coming coming to your house because your floor was so warm! Caroline was always nearby. Her voice and laughter was memorable. It was so good to see the video of how fulfilled her life was, especially through the happiness of family.
Lori & John, my deepest condolences to you for the loss of your mom. I pray that her spirit lives in you all of your days.
John, I pray for you to feel her presence in the days and weeks ahead and the God will hear your prayers. God bless.
My deepest sympathy,
Jenifer Grabarczyk-Brown
The middle daughter of Danny & Anne

I am so sorry for your loss, Christine. I met your sister once. The two of you were having lunch at Wendy's after a swim. Nice lady. With sincere sympathy, Vickie Wagner
