It's been such a long time since seeing Carolyn but I remember her so well. Always smiling, soft-spoken, beyond intelligent and truly just a wonderful and caring person. I was only a child but have only distinct, great memories of our time together. I will always remember Friday nights at Ming Gate Chinese restaurant in the late 80s. The round table with the Lazy Susan in the room used for storage and holiday events was always filled with the most amazing off-menu Chinese food. She had me try (and love) Mala Chicken. Shrimp, fried with their heads still on. Those nights created the love I have for food today. Mainly I remember many nights sitting in her den and listening to great conversations about the wonderful places she traveled, NASA and the books, stacked wherever there was space, she read. My mom (Pat Marsh) and I would have never had so many great memories if it wasn't for the friendship between her and Carolyn. She was always there for my mom during her toughest times and will always be grateful. I am saddened to hear of her passing I wish was able to have attended the service.

Kelsey and Patrick, Sending you all love and apologies for not being able to be there for Carolyn's funeral. Hannah remembers Nana Carolyn and, after we told her of her passing, asked for her giant penguin that she remembered Carolyn gave her so many years ago. Carolyn was so kind and loving and a wonderful role model for women in science, which we tell both the kids. So happy she got to be a part of her granddaughter's life, even though brief. Love to you both. -Ashley
