Not a moment in time passes without thinking of you. So many times you figured everything out for us. I only am comforted by the fact that you will no longer have to deal with the world we live in. There will be no more family feuds or fights. No more terrible tragic events of the world. You are in a better place than we all are and you will no longer have to worry or stress. You’ve always been our voice of reason and you always taught us so much. You always smiled and I know you’ll always be still smiling at us and reminding us of your grace. We will continue to make you proud and we will always figure it out. We will continue your legacy. I love you mom so so so much.

My heart felt condolences for Carleens family and friends. There are no words can use to describe my once co worker. She was a true friend to all, never sugar coated anything, always near when you need anything. And when the Jags play, I know I will hear her cheering from goal post to goal post.

My heart feels empty knowing she is no longer with us. I never felt any less than one of her own children. She was an absolutely amazing mother and friend and I will remember her ALWAYS!!!

Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
Far as long as there is memory,
They’ll live on in the heart.

The first day I met Ms Carleen I thought she was the most sweetest person ever. Always a smile on her face and the BIGGEST Jags fan I ever met. I can’t watch a game without thinking of her. She will be truly missed by so many people. Thank you Ms Carleen and your family for being such wonderful people.
