Hello, Goldsmith family,

So sorry for your loss of Carolyn. I have many great memories of Carolyn, and got to know your family by helping out at the chicken farm. I can't believe my parents let me drive my Honda 70 from County Road 3 to the Goldsmith farm. My prayers are with you today. It would have been great to see you again, but can't because of the virus. It really meant a lot when Dave came to my parents' visitations. In Christian love, Gary Ross Mann

Was saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Goldsmith. She was one of the kindest and understanding person I had the privilege to know. Fond memories in the coup candeling eggs with her, Dave, and Ernie. My heart goes out to the family.

I am thankful to have shared so many coffee dates in Swanton with Carolyn sharing stories and a lot of laughs.
But most of all I was blessed to have called her my mother-in-law and my friend. I love you Carolyn. You will be missed here on earth, but what an Angel God has gained in Heaven.

Barry and I loved visiting Carolyn. She was always upbeat when we would see her. Our moms have been gone for a long time. It was like going to visit our mom. The greatest part is someday we will see her again in heaven. Our sincere sympathy Pat to you and the rest of your families. She loved you all so dearly just as you all loved her.

I send prayers of condolence to Mrs. Goldsmith's family and friends on behalf of the former Church Street Druckenmiller family. May joyful memories carry all through your time of her celebration of life.
God Bless,
Amen !

Im so sorry for your families loss. I met Carolyn when she was working at Something Special. Then later, at Swanton Alliance Church. She was my prayer partner on the prayer chain. She was such a sweet woman and a great listener.
