My wife and I extend our sincere condolences. Dr. Broomall was so very special and had such a warm kind soul. Since we first met, me doing repair work on one of her properties, working in and around her home and receiving wise counsel on a few occasions, we got along very well. I'd love watching her spend hours studying at home, listening to her, and watching her large German Shepherds as they would rump around in the yard. We were praying for her and couldn’t find her where abouts and now find comfort in knowing for sure, Carolyn is “Somewhere around the Throne of God”.
