Not sure what to say?

Carrie and I first met in a French class at Virginia Tech in 2000. We became fast friends as I was in awe and admiration of her early mastery of the language. I'll always remember her intellect, true class and enthusiasm for world cultures, travel and living life to the fullest. Her quote "luggage should never be dusty" is so quintessentially Carrie (I borrowed her quote for many a bio over the years). This past weekend, a friends and I held an intimate virtual memorial in her...

Carrie was my French I professor at MIT, where she went out of her way to accommodate my class conflicts so I could enroll in the class. In learning basic French phrases, it came up that I was also from Virginia. We later discussed in english that we were actually both from Williamsburg and had gone to the same high school. Carrie was a wonderful teacher and I learned a great deal from her. I was so shocked to hear the news, and I will carry my memories of her class and our Williamsburg...

I am so proud of Carrie. I haven't seen her in many years. But what I've been reading about her life she is an awesome young lady. God took her too soon

Dear family and friends of Carrie
I do not know your daughter but by reading of her I wish I did. She sounds like a brightly burning light in this crazy dark world. Teachers often touch our lives and we never give them credit or acknowledgement. Thank you family for encouraging your daughter to learn, explore and share with the world. You can rest knowing she made such a difference globally.
God Bless you.

Carrie was my student at Virginia Tech. She took French classes with me, was active in the French club for which I was faculty advisor, and studied in Paris during a summer when I was director. Language learning is a communal experience, and Carrie created community wherever she went. We last connected over coffee in Paris during the summer of 2016. Her spirit will live on in those of us who taught and learned with her.

I can’t believe she’s gone. Carrie was such a wonderful young woman and a beloved member of the family. I remember spending lots of time with you in CT in the summers and enjoyed out times together with family at Grandma’s house in NY. I know you are soaring with angels! Rest In Peace Carrie!

Sending my condolences too Christine and Dan and Philip O'Connor at the time of their loss of my niece Carrie Lynn. May she rest in peace.

Beth and I cherish our memories of our excursions with Carrie and Andrew, whether it was to museums for off-the-beaten path art exhibits or seeing Hamilton, as well as just sharing some really good homemade food. We will miss you Carrie.
