David, Mindy and Ben, We just learned of Carla's passing and we are so saddened by the news. Carla was a beautiful lady both inside and out, always smiling.
We will be praying for all of you.

I am so sorry to learn of the homegoing of Carla. Carla was my cousin and I remember her fondly. She was always so beautiful. I haven't seen her in years but had the joy of reuniting with her on Facebook several years ago. She was very uplifting and caring in her responses on Facebook and it was so nice to get re-acquainted.
Mindy, you look so much like your mother. I'm sure the memories you have will carry you through the rough days ahead.
The family will be in my prayers and in my heart.

I only saw Carla at family events when they would come visit in Valley, AL but she was always smiling and happy always!
She loved cooking and taking care of her family! When her grandson came along, you could tell that she was over the moon!
She will be missed by all who came in contact with her!

What a treasure. I've known Carla since I can remember. As little girls, we played Barbies and we made the best Easy bake oven cakes ever. From Kindergarten to graduating High school, we remained friends. After moving, we saw each other at class reunions. But, 6 years ago we reconnected through Facebook. She came to see me and was overjoyed of a grandson, Carson. I too was having my first grandson. She came to see me when she came home. I'm going to miss you. I love you Carla. Rest easy. Our love thoughts and prayers are with David, Mindy, Ben, Carson, Bruce and Ms Hilda during these difficult times.

We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. She was so thoughtful. She brought me a caramel cake to one of the OR football tailgates. She knew I loved it!

Carla was the sweetest person and her smile, well, she was just beautiful.
We had a nice conversation as we were catching up at a class reunion and we also had a sad conversation at a family funeral for Brenda in recent years. On a funny note, a few yrs ago when we kept up with a TV show, REVENGE, we would text back and forth with our comments or thoughts about what was was silly fun ...RIP sweet Carla

Remember an Easter at Fuller’s cabin and Carla baked some of the best bread we had ever eaten. She loved her family.
