Memories Timeline


  1. I’m sorry for the loss of a lovely lady. I knew her throughout school and loss touch when I left the state but she was never out of my heart or mind. I’m so sorry you loss her. My prayers are with you and her.—Diana Swope(Young)

  2. Dear Sharon and Ray,

    I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I well remember Kerie as a small child and the challenges she faced. Last year when I came to Pueblo for the CNB Christmas party, it was a delight to be able to see her. I know she brought much joy into your lives, and I know how much you must miss her; and yet I also know that she is in a happy and trouble-free place now – a place where you will eventually join her and see her sweet smile again. My thoughts and prayers are with you.



  3. Dear Ray and Sharon……. Only by chance did I find about the loss of Kerie. Mom’s cousin in Pueblo, Maxine Webb, saw the obit in the paper and called me to let me know…. I am so sorry for your loss. When my dad passed away and we were there for his funeral, I so enjoyed Kerie and her wonderful sense of humor and laugh. May God bring you comfort and peace and many sweet memories of her and the many lives she touched. God Bless you……Kowana (Morlan) Capagli

  4. I was very saddened when I heard about the loss of Kerie.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you Sharon and Ray. I have known Kerie since
    elementary to the present. She was always one of the sweetest friends that anyone could have. I always enjoyed my birthday/slumber parties that she came to when we were younger, we had a blast. She definitely had a great laugh which will be missed. In the last several years, I had enjoyed her coming into my gift shop and watching her pick out her favorite kitchen fairie for her or her Mom and catch up on what was going on in our lives. I will definitely miss her coming in to my shop just to say hi. It was always nice seeing her when she came by.

    I am sorry I was not able to make it to the service today but my thoughts an prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

    May she rest in peace and be free from any pain now.

    My thoughts and Prayers,
