In loving memory of a wonderful person. I will love you and miss you always. So Sorry for your loss, sending prayers for you and your family today and every day! Carla was such a beautiful person inside and out, so full of love ❤ and joy! Im sorry I couldnt be there but I didnt want to take the chance of getting anyone else sick! Love to your family and friends!! Virginia

I enjoyed working with Carla at Home Hospital. She was always so pleasant and just a joy to be around. She loved her family so much. My sympathies to you all.

Carla was a sweet lady and will be missed by many. We worked at Home Hospital/St Elizabeth and when we saw each other in cafeteria and in the hallways, we could catch up on events of the days, she was always friendly and had a smile for all. Prayers for her loved ones . She is in a better place.

I feel blessed to have known Carla, even when we didn't see each other for long periods of time it was as if we just saw each other the day before - she just made you feel special and important to her. I will cherish the memories, Pay Less picnics, day to day working at the store and don't forget about our nights out having fun! Carla was so full of life and truly cared about her family and friends. Carla went through some rough periods in her life but she came out the other side with her...

Carla will be missed. Prayers for family and friends.

We send our heartfelt sympathy to Carla's family. She was a very special lady. Carla will be remembered for her beautiful smile and the joy & love she shared.

Jessica and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Know that her and Kale are running free and no longer are in pain in heaven. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
