    I so appreciated the opportunity to work at Clinique w/ Carolyn as my territory mgr in the mid 80’s. I was newly married & needed a job while my husband was finishing hiis degree at UNL. She was very encouraging & a beautiful woman, inside & out. I always looked forward to her visiting for special events. To God be the glory for the impact Carolyn had on me at such an impressionable time. My prayers & condolences to you all.
