Carrie was such a sweet girl, I am so sorry for your loss. She will be remembered by so many people. I worked with her at Walmart a few yrs ago, we got along great, and even after I couldn’t work any more, we got along great. She always had a smile on her face that would lift anyone’s feelings. I sure will miss seeing her at Walmart. May God be with you and help your family thru this very hard time. I am so sorry.

Dear Doris and Greg, Becky called and told us about Carrie. Words can’t express thoughts on such a loss. Because Susanna’s Dad has a serious illness, we were in Morgantown and unable to pay respects. Our thoughts and prayers, though, are with you, and we know you have good family support at this time. Love, Susanna & Doug

Doris, Greg & Family,

We just read the Tgiving paper Fri night and read about your Carrie. We are so sorry to hear about your loss and want to express our sympathy. We are unable to come to the funeral home today because of a previous committment. However, please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. We called Mom last night because she would want to know. We’ll call you in the next day or so to talk. So sorry, I can only imagine how difficult this is for you all. I lost my mom on 9/11, but losing a child would be soooo hard, especially at this time. Take care… God loves you and your family… KC, Stevie and Family

Greeting our loved ones as you walk along,while singing heaven’s most beautiful song.

This is so very hard, but it will all be ok,it isn’t goodbye,we’ll see you one day.

We love you and we’ll miss you and at times it will be tough,but as with everything,God’s grace will be enough. In my heart you will be forever carrie! To Terry and family you have a special angel watching over you forever! love to all of you! DeAnna & Jay

i can not even begin to express what a horrible tragedy this must be for all of you. i went to west liberty with carrie and was relatively good friends with herwe lived on the same floor..right down the hall from each other. i am so shocked to find out that she is no longer with us. i wish i would have found out sooner as i would have loved to pay my repects to her. i am so deeply sorry for your loss i know how special she was to all of you and what a great person she was. you will all be in my thoughts and prayers as you try to get through this devestating event. i can’t believe she is gone we are all still so young and too young to be taken away from this world. we had some great times up at west liberty and i just can’t believe that she’s gone its seems like only yesterday i saw her at walmart working her butt off and not too long since we were all having our “college experience”. again i am so very sorry for your loss and i know how hard it is going to be without her

my sincerest sympathy

It’s hard to put into words…a very special girl is with Jesus. He had special plans for her and we will all miss her. It was hard for me to concentrate at work. The song came on the radio in the office The Wind Beneath My Wings and I thought of Carrie and I cried. She is so special to everyone. I will always keep Carrie and all of you in my prayers..Patty Lish

Terry and family:

So much pain and so much darkness

In this world we stumble through

All these questions we can’t answer

And so much work to do

But, when we get where we’re goin’

There’ll be only happy tears

We will shed the sins and struggles

We have carried all these years

And we’ll leave our hearts wide open

We will love and have no fear

Yeah, when we get where we’re goin’

And we see our Maker’s face

We’ll stand forever in the light

Of His amazing grace

Yeah, when we get where we’re goin’

There’ll be only happy tears

We will love and have no fears

So don’t cry for us down here!!

With our sincere condolences.
