This is Evelyn Shelby, a friend of Carolyn Lawson, of Carolyn's Creations, who used to bead with me on a regular basis. I wanted to let you know that Carolyn passed away on 10-2-16, of complications from cancer.

Thanks for letting us know Evelyn, that's incredibly sad news. Although I didn't know Carolyn personally, she frequently entered our challenges and I always enjoyed seeing her work. I'm so sorry for your loss, please pass on my condolences to her family.
