My thoughts and prayers go to Carolyn's family.  She was the director of Little People Day Care School when my son was a student and my daughter was a teacher's aide there.  Carolyn was a dedicated teacher and cared deeply about her students. Her legacy will continue in those she taught.

I first met Carolyn as a Boy Scout leader. Later I was a babysitter for Kylie as Mom went to work at a daycare. My oldest son has been friends with Andy throughout their school years and beyond. Carolyn was a lovely, strong lady -beautiful in so many ways. She was a hard worker and took care of her family. I was lucky to know Carolyn for so many years. My heart goes out to each one of you and I can only pray that you will have many wonderful memories of your wife, Sam, and your mom Chris, Andy and Kylie. With heartfelt sympathy Sandi

Kiley and Schroder Family - I can't begin to express how sorry I am for this tremendous loss and how deeply saddened my family and I are.  Many of my happiest childhood memories are time spent with Carolyn and Kiley.  Carolyn was always so warm and loving to all of us and had a way of making us feel so special.  She was smart, funny, creative and talented...but most of all kind and giving.  Carolyn made everything fun...even the most mundane task.  I have and will always cherish my memories with Carolyn.  I feel truly thankful to have known her.  

Love you all very much Schroder Family...I know your special angel will be looking over you.

Kiley, know that I have been  praying for you all day today. I cannot imagine all the burden you carry, but I ask the Lord to help lift ithe load.  When my daughter was a little girl, she asked if God had arms.  I explained that God is Spirit and doesn't have a body like ours.  She asked, "Then how does he give hugs?" Taking her in my arms, I told her, "When God wants to give a hug, he reaches down and borrows our arms." May God use the arms of many people around you to share hugs in the days and weeks ahead.  Love, Emily

Sam, Chris, Andy, and Kylie,, directors how sorry I am to hear about Carolyn's passing.  Denise Cordivano called especially to tell me this sad news and we reminisced about all the special years we had together with Carolyn at Little People.  Her loving spirit helped children, teachers, directors and this administrator every day.  It was a joy to be with Carolyn. I remember watching you kids grow up year by year through the stories your mom so lovingly shared.  Sam, you were her rock.  I will always remember your entire family with love.  You are in my prayers.
