"Dear Ms. Carrie,
Since you were called home, I have missed you.
Your kindness and spirit are what I most remember about you. Spending time with you was always a joy; always made me feel better.
I will forever remember you...forever miss you.

"One who brought joy, love, and happiness to many lives, My Mom. I miss you..."
"for 66 years I called you ma. .Less than I hoped for and yet more than most though your physical presence will be missed your spirit will always be felt and I still call you ma"
"Mama, it's been eight months since you decided that your time with us had come you an end. God was ready, and so were you. You had been preparing us for this for several months, but I guess we did not want to hear and accept what you were saying. We sit around and talk about it now--in laughter and tears--how you always were there to talk to and to solve our problems in your often humorous ways. You are still doing that. Your two long distance grand youngings, as you called them, are back home. They said you are working your thing from heaven. Mama, you will always be with us. We love and miss you and Daddy so much."
