"It did not seem like you are gone from us,  when we came together on yesterday . It felt as if you were in the house just in another room  just not saying much, as we laugh and enjoyed the family game day . It has been a year  longer than I want to remember. The love you shared and invested in the family is still stronger than ever.   I truly appreciate the way you raise your children to love and support each other. You truly taught us to value the life we have as family and with an unselfish love, which  you shared.   Your love had no expectation and required nothing in return. I could not have wanted any more than that in a mother-in love laws  You were my example of what I aspire to be in my building a family extensions. The love you gave us still radiates in the family  as a matter of fact we are even closer. We will always remember you and what we learn from you."

"We were blessed by Carnie Scates. It wasn't just her beauty, her smile which we will forever remember, but her forthrightness, her honesty, her kindness and love for those she loved as well as for strangers. She was truly a remarkable woman and we were impressed with the love she clearly showed for her family who clearly loved and greatly admired her in return.
Again, God has blessed us with the rich, lovable and true person we knew in Carnie Scates. She will be missed of course and yet to have known her leaves us better than we were.
God be with her children and loved ones in her absence.

Rahim and Louvenia Azzan"

"So sorry that you have experienced the loss of someone so dear. Wouldn't it be nice to live during a time when no one will feel the pain of sickness and the overwhelming sorrow of death.  That is a solid promise found in the pages of God's word. Isa 33:24 says of that future time, "And no resident will say: I am sick.""
