    Sending deepest sympathies to all of you. In times like these we often feel as though our faith is tested and we turn to the lord and ask for strength and guidance. In doing this he has opened my eyes and shown me that Carlie was so truly blessed. You have allowed her to receive the greatest gifts that we as humans can offer – Love. Thank you for blessing her with the love of marriage, a child, family and community. Though her time here was short, it is evident from all the photos that you gave her everything that made her time on earth worthwhile. God Bless.

    My deepest condolences and sympathy for the entire family of dear, sweet Carlie. It has been a long hard road taken with strength, resolve and fortitude. May you now rest in peace from this world and your legacy live on for others to cherish, model and learn from. Although always living far away, I heard about you and your life often from Tyler’s grandparents. Bless you Tyler and Elijah, Jean, Dale and all the family. Sending you God’s peace. Jean’s cousin.
