Words really cannot express how sorry I am that Carlene has past on. I know how much you will miss her because out of great love does come the pain of separation. She was a great encourager of myself and everyone that she knew. Her hope gives us comfort, because we know it was for this cause that Jesus died so that we might have that eternal home with Him. While we are truly sad and are weeping, we are also rejoicing that Sister Carlene has run her race with courage and conviction.

My love to you and all the family,
