  1. Dear Carey and Chris,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I learned so much about your Mom from the thoughtful, loving tribute in the memorial. She and your Dad had such an exciting and interesting life together. I now know why you are such a lover of life.

  2. We love you Mom! You and Dad were best of friends and had a loving and devoted marriage to the end. I’ll always remember the outward affection you shared with Dad when in tender moments in the Care Center, your concern for others needs in deference of your own needs when you were so weak and your wave Good-bye to me when I saw you last.
    … With Love, Always ~ your son Carey
