    Ms. Tallman!!! You will be soooo missed!! My most favorite memory is when you got up on the ticket table and danced to “love Potion #9″…we were all so tired at the time and needed a boost to get us thru the rest of the Valentine holiday!! Your sense of humor was greatly appreciated in the workroom! Your floral designs were some of the most creative I have ever seen! Much love to you in Heaven!

  2. Debbie Miller says:

    Carolyn was a special lady! I worked with her for awhile at the Boones Creek Food City until my shop opened up in Jonesborough!! She was a gracious ,funny, talented lady who taught me the “Food City way” while we Co Managed together! She often spoke of her children and grand babies ! I was happy to move over to the new store but hated leaving my Carolyn! I picked her up for our yearly meeting and got caught up with each other during the drive!! She was a good person with a big heart. I know she will be missed by all of you! Dance with Jesus Miss Carolyn!❤️❤️
