Carrie was one of my first cousins. We grew up around Sunday dinners and playing in the yard at our grandparents. When my mom passed away, Carrie was very vigilant in keeping in touch with me by phone calls and facebook. That really helped me get through some rough days. I can’t believe we have to say bye for now at such young ages in our lives but, I will miss you Carrie and Love you always! Janet

Dear Pat, Bill and family,

Carrie was my very first employee through the DECA program at Great Bridge High. Mine was a small military greeting card company in its infancy and there were times when things were so demanding that if we didn’t ACT like nuts, we would GO nuts and Carrie was a hoot. She was kind and hard working and always good for a laugh to lighten the mood and relieve the tension. She was a joy to work with.

Though I sorrow for your loss, I rejoice over Carrie’s gain of eternal life with Christ. We will meet again.

May God’s comfort bring peace in your hearts knowing that you will see carrie again in Heaven. I am so upset that I won’t be able to be at either services for Carrie as I can’t get off work and Wed, night I have to be at my church to do Bible Study. My manager at work is on vacation and it just leaves me and the asst. mgn. there. I am the only delivery driver. I am passing this obituary on to family. Love you folks and I am in prayer for you in your loss.

My heart goes out to Carrie’s family. Carrie was a gentle, caring and wonderful friend growing up. I have a lot of fond memories of her between school, 4-H, horses etc. She will be missed. This world was a better place just because she was here and now there is a new angel in heaven to watch over her family & friends. Rest in peace Carrie.

Mr. & Mrs. Barnett,
Mike and crystal;
I wish I knew the words to say that could lift the sadness of your loss but I am afraid I have no words that will do that. I can only offer you my condolences and pray that this will help carry you until the day you are together again. The short time Carrie was with us she touched many lives. I know she made a lasting impression on every one she ever met and the world is a dimmer place without her in it, but what an angel God received the day He called Carrie home. Carrie, you are at peace in the arms of our heavenly Father. May your bright light shine on in memories until we meet again. Always smiling and a friend to everyone you knew; although we lost contact over the years, I always knew I had a friend in you. I will keep you all in my prayers.
