We are grateful to have had opportunity to serve Carrie and John at the Chateau at Sharmar Assisted Living Residence and Sharmar Village Care Center for the last 7 years. Carrie was truly a blessing to the facility, playing the piano for the weekly “hymn sing”, volunteering for the American Cancer Society and serving as our Silver Queen candidate. She continued to plan parties whenever family came to town, catalog shop and share treasured family photos. She truly made the most of her last years. Even though her body was frail, her spirit was incredibly strong. We will never forget her and we pray God’s comfort and blessing to her family.
Much love to all of the familiy during this great loss, especially Jim! Carrie and I have had some great times and I know she is making music in Heaven right now. May God’s blessings be many and His arms surroud you as you grieve.
