Of all the amazing cities that Carolyn visited, Rome was always her favoriteShe and Ras went back many times - being blessed by three different Popes 

 

Heaven was at the top of her bucket listGod must surely be waiting for her on account of all His wonderful worksCarolyn is blessed to check off heaven on her bucket listHer final celebration.
