"I have some of my fondest memories at Carmen's homes throughout my younger years. She was always interested in what was on my mind and how my soul was doing whether heartbreak or joy. She soothed the soul and inspired individuality.

Usually it is very simple to pick out a favorite fond memory about a person. With Carmen, every single one brings a smile to my heart.

The things that she embraced, smiled about and when she laughed that endearing laugh and shrugged her shoulders in a care-free way while Cori and I acted goofy or got into trouble as we grew from teens into young adults. The gleam in her eyes as she listened to our wildest adventures as if she were right there with us the whole time. The countless times she dropped everything to pick us up from the mall or take us to a movie. Visiting with her for hours sharing dreams. Spur of the moment road trips (Reno was a HOOT!)... Carmen's door was always open for me. Lots of laughter, love and even blissful chaos when Cori, Jr., Tony and I were in the house at the same time!

Carmen. A beautiful flower inspiring the rest of the bouquet to be their true colors… Thank you for being a part of my life :-)"

"What is dying? I am standing on the sea shore, a ship sails in the morning breeze and starts for the ocean. She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her till at last she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says: “She is gone.” Gone! Where? Gone from my sight—that is all. She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination. The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her, and just at the moment when someone at my side says, “She is gone” there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up a glad shout: “There she comes!” —and that is dying.
Thank you for loving my father and your many years with him!"

"Aunt, just wanted to say thanks for letting me basically live at your house when I was a kid. Since I was an only child you allowed me to have the closest thing to brothers and a sister I could possibly have. I will always remember you. My thoughts and prayers are with you"

I'm sorry you had to suffer with bad health your last years.
May you rest in peace and be whole again in Heaven."

"Grandma the moment I found out u died my heart ripped in two. one side filled with heartache and the other died with you. I often lie awake at night when the world is sleeping and take a walk down memory lane with tears on my cheeks. Remembering you is easy I do it everyday. But missing you is a heartache that will never ever go away. I'll hold you tightly in my heart where you will forever be until we meet again. If I could have 1 wish come true I would wish to have a day with you and pray that it would last forever.  "God looked around his garden and found a empty space then he looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face he put his arm around you and lifted you to rest Gods garden must be beautiful he only takes the best." When you walked into her house her first words were "want something to eat?" And her last words to you were "want something to take with you?" You never came to her house hungry and left the same way. We all miss you grandma but someday we will all meet again in a wonderful place called heaven. -Taylor Myers   P.S I love you grandma❤️"
