  2. Cari was a dear friend of mine. We shared a lot of our lives over the last 20 years, starting when our boys where in pre-school. She was a faithful and loyal friend to me and I knew I could always count on her. Cari cared deeply for other people and wanted to make a difference in their lives and I believe she did – I know she made a difference in mine.
