Not sure what to say?

Ali & Family, It was a true honor to spend time with Mrs. Carr over the last six months of her life. She was an absolute joy to be around. She knew how to put someone at ease and make them feel very welcome and comfortable. Always an encouragement or a praise. She had a gift. We will miss her very much. Our prayers are with you and your families.

Dear Carr Family, We feel very fortunate to have known Patty, if only for a very short time. She was always encouraging us even in her failing health. She was still teaching, as she always loved doing. Our lives are fuller to have known such a wonderful woman. Prayers to all. God Bless. Connie and Jana Yerian

Both Teresa and I will always have fond memories of our visits with Dick and Patty. Patty was always very upbeat, was usually involved in some kind of activity and was very excited about life.

We are so sorry to hear of Dick's loss and our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow.
Dave and Teresa McCreary

Allison and family even though I was a caregiver for your mother a short time from Home Instead we talked and I felt like I knew her for ever she will be missed

Dr Carr and family - Our sympathy to
you on the loss of Patty. So sorry
to see this. Sincerely,
Deanna and Eddie

Sorry we can't attend the celebration of her life. We would enjoy being with family.

My heart go out to her husband Dr Richard and her children.. On the passing of my dearest friend Patty.. You are in my prayers ..

We are all better people for having had Patty in our lives. She always had a smile and kind word for everyone. I will always remember her pulling her little red wagon through the halls of Deer Run Elementary, looking forward to another day with the little ones. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dr. Carr, Brett, Kitsy, Missy and Allison: I have fond memories of our growing up together on Pevensey Drive.

Patty used to read us Emily Post's etiquette to try and smooth out some rough adolescent boys' corners.

My hopes and prayers go out to you and yours at this difficult time.

- Brian
