I have fond memories of this dear lady. She always treated me like I was one of her own. As I recall back through the years I think it was 1989 when I first met her, she had a little poodle that she really loved but her concerns were always for her family. She will be sadly missed by a lot of people but we have the assurance that we can see her again one day.

I’m a coworker of bobby Carey, bobby is such a blessing to know, and I’m sure his mother has had big part in raising a wonderful man. I am so sorry to hear about this, my prayers are with the entire Carey family. God bless
