Dear Ed, Chris and Joey,
Thank you so much for letting me have time with Carma the last days of her life.
We had been friends for 35 plus yrs, and even though there were yrs that went by without seeing or talking with each other the love for each other NEVER left us. I have such fond memories that I'll always hold dear in my heart of all of you.
To know Carma was pure love and made me a better person.
God differently has a beautiful angel that's watching over you all and everyone she loved.
Love Jan

Dear Ed, Chris & Michael,

I had the honor and privelege of working with Carma for almost ten years at IntegraCare Home Health. Her compassion for caring for others, especailly those in our society that are often overlooked and discounted, made her one of those rare inidivudals that you feel lucky to have known. I hope you can find peace and solace in knowing that her spirit will live on forever in all of the lives she touched.

The impact Carma had on nursing, homecare, or those lucky enough to be mentored by her can never be measured. I will miss her humor and her friendship. Rest easy my dear friend. My prayers are with your family.

Ed, I am so sorry about Carma. I never did meet her, but I know you talked about her a lot. Losing a spouse is a trauma to your soul and existence. My thoughts and good wishes are with you and your family in this grief. Time will heal the hurt. Carolyn

I fondly think of our youth together and wish you Godspeed to a better paradise.

I close my eyes
Only for a moment, then the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

It's the same old song
We're just a drop of water, in an endless sea
All we do
Just crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind.

Love to family in this time of grief.

Carma will be missed so much! She was a strong, independent, opinionated, kind, and compassionate woman that demanded your respect from the first time you met her and fiercely loved her family. I will be forever grateful to have called her my mother in law and for the love and kindness she showed me.
Love, Cyndy
