I remember when I was little, I thought Carla was so cool. I wanted to be like her. I always noticed how her jeans fit tight. I wanted my to do the same. My legs were skinny. (Lol, but not now. 😁). I also remember when Bert let her drive his car (I think it was a mustang). She was training for her license. I remember Joyce going too. I thought I was cool. I loved Carlas unique voice and laugh. I was/ felt very close to all my aunts, uncles and cousins. 💖 It is Awesome to be part of a large family. RIP CARLA
