My deepest sympathy to the family on Carrie's passing.
I met her when we were involved with the senior citizens lunch program. Also her and Frances went to Florida on bus trip with my group in early 1980.
I saw her at church in November.
She was a remarkable and kind person. Lot of fun.
God Bless you during this time.

We are going to miss Carey greatly, she has been a part of my life when I was a teenager and then as an adult & as my neighbor. She had the kindest heart in the world she thought of everyone else 1st. I hope she has found peace & happiness because she deserves it.
We will miss you always.

My Aunt Carrie was a very special lady and will be missed. She was a genuinely good person. I'm happy to know she is now in heaven with her sister (my Grandmother) they were very close. Aunt Carrie told me horror stories about her childhood yet she didn't let it affect her success in life. I wish I were as strong as her. Love, Suzi
