Auntie Carla My closing remark was is that although most of my life I watched you struggle with MS its good to feel that you are at perfect peace with our Father May you accept my kindness and rest without judgement

My auntie Carla will be missed! I'm learning that God does allow His children to see that when you think no one cares someone does that's what I will.

While growing up on 24th & Adams in or very early days, Carla & her Mom were my neighbors. Carla was like a sister to me & everyone on our block were very close in those days. Carla was a wonderful friend with a sweet smile and soft spoken voice and always nice. A wonderful person indeed. We attended Lincoln University. I was a freshman and she was a senior. Carla will never be forgotten. God bless her and her family and may she rest in peace.
