Thinking of all of you as you celebrate Carmen's Life and Love you shared. I have fond memories of Carmen at Loon Creek Church, growing up. She was quick with a smile and always friendly. Terry and Delena, we have not seen each other since we were kids, but I will always hold the memories of the families of Loon Creek Church close in my heart.
May you feel God's Love and Guidance as you walk through the days and years ahead. Take care of Yourselves and Your Loved Ones.
