    Dear Mike and Lynn, I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s death, You know how close I was to her and your Dad over the many years we worked together at Murdoch and beyond.

    I am sorry for the loss of mentor and friend, Carolyn. We shared our careers at Murdoch Center as she served as a supervisor and friend. She was a true beacon to Murdoch, managing cottage life, educational leave, training, banquets, a founder of farm day and providing counsel and friendship to her many staff. I am grateful to have spent many years under her leadership and friendship. She would always take time for her staff. All of her staff became family and friends. Mike and Lynn, thank you for sharing her with so many people for many years.

    Mike and Lynn, Your mom was a phenomenal lady. She was always a great listener, leader, and provided words of wisdom if needed. Carolyn was a “force of nature.” She was a hard worker and ensured that the “needs of those less fortunate” were always top priority at Murdoch. She was an amazing woman and a true friend. May God hold your families in His loving hands. Always keep the memories.

    So very sorry for the loss of your mother. Carolyn was a strong woman and she fought a good fight. I will miss seeing her sitting on the porch or in the yard. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. She has gone where we all pray to one day be. The Kincaid Family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Oh Mike and Lynn, I am so very sorry about the passing of your dear Mother. I worked with her in the late 70’s and early 80’S and enjoyed every second of our time together. She was so instrumental in my career iand I am forever grateful for her mentorship and friendship!

  • Rhonda Butler Posted June 16, 2022 2:45 pm

    Lynn and Mike. I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember Carolyn being a great and very influential leader at MDC. She loved staff and residents and in turn was loved by many people. Hugs and prayers to you and your families during this very difficult time.

    Carolyn and I were co-workers at Murdoch Center for 27 years. She was a most loyal friend, great advocate for client services, and always a positive force in the public image of Murdoch. Murdoch is a better place because Carolyn Kincaid set the standard of what makes a great public servant.
    Another dimension of Carolyn was her commitment to family ,community, and her church. I do not believe it to be an exaggeration to say that if I spoke to Carolyn for more than five minutes , she would always say something about her family.

    Mike and Lynn- Buck and I are so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. We both worked with her at Murdoch for many years. My last job at Murdoch was actually in Staff Development where she was my boss. And what a great boss she was. She was a great leader but even a better listener and supporter of her staff! She influenced so many lives throughout her career as well as in her retirement. Our prayers are with you and the rest of the family.

    Dear Mike and Lynn., We were so sorry to hear about the passing of your sweet Mom. Such a pleasure to always be around. She was such a special lady and we always enjoyed when she came in BOBS to eat. Our families were away on Vacation when she passed and during her arrangements otherwise we would have visited. Please know y’all are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Carla and Paula

    To the family, I am deeply saddened by the grief you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s love for you, continue to look to him when ” he will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, suffering, and pain will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
    How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.
