Carmen Marie Schentrup 2/21/01-2/14/18

Carmen was a beautiful, caring, talented, smart, and witty 16 year old. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and making others laugh. Carmen pushed herself to do her best in school, piano, and learning new things, such as German. She was involved in her church youth group and different school clubs. Her favorite past times were watching TV shows, guessing the endings to movies, and devouring books. Carmen also liked to travel, visit art museums, and help others. She was excited about graduating from Stoneman Douglas this June and attending either the University of Florida or the University of Washington. Her dreams were to become a medical scientist, find the cure for ALS, and make the world a better place. Her parents, brother, sister, and all those who love her, miss her greatly, and wish she was still here.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for a while, leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never ever the same."

Sending love and caring thoughts during this time of loss. Your daughter was a beautiful and gifted young soul whose time and place on earth will never be forgotten. Sincerely, PM

I didn't know Carmen or your family but after looking at all your beautiful photos I feel like I do. I shed many tears while watching that incredible memorial tribute. Carmen was a bright light in the world and though she may be gone that bright light lives on. I lost a child myself 16 years ago and can say that only time and faith will bring you comfort and some measure of peace. Many people will talk about closure. I don't believe there is closure when you lose a child. Closure for me is when I'm reunited with my son in heaven. I don't want closure on earth because that would mean he is no longer in my life when I know he's around me all the time and always in my heart. I can't imagine the immeasurable pain you are in losing your beautiful girl the way you did. I can only hope she went home immediately with no suffering or pain. God bless all of you, her extended family and friends as you mourn the passing of such a special young lady. Just know she's never truly gone. May God bless you all.
