Messages & Condolences

From Barbara J. Wilson...

I was so saddened to learn of Carrie’s passing. She & Sam lived next door to us until they moved to Praire Commons. My sons were always at their house. I remember hearing the Christian Music coming from the open windows and the smells of Carrie cooking after picking her fresh produce from their garden. I know she has gone to be with Sam. May our Lord bless you all and give you comfort and peace at this most difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Joanna, Jack and Floyd – so very sorry for your loss. Joanna, I always enjoyed your Mom when she joined us at our “Girls of ‘62” luncheons. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give you comfort and peace at this difficult time.
