Remembering hearing you and Carla's story for the first time. Even with all that life had thrown you all, you all insisted on taking on even more, to give others in your lives better, for which I believe will truly be rewarded.

Love, laugh, and soak in what beauty is left here in this life for you, whether it's a child's smile, or a sunrise peaking through the morning fog.

Roll On with Carla in your heart....

I don't know what to say. I was so surprised to hear that Carla had passed! I know she will be sorely missed. She was a wonderful friend and a great wife and mother and grandmother! I hope and pray that you take comfort knowing how well loved Carla was. And that our Maker decided to bring her on home! God Bless you and your family in your time of sorrow!

We were shocked to hear of Carla's death. We will cherish the "good old days" when we would visit the Pipkin family in Memphis & they would visit us in Mobile. A time when life was good & without too many problems & strife. We pray that God will give you all comfort & ease your grief in the coming days.

... A smile for all and a heart of gold, one of the best this world could hold. Never selfish, always kind, a beautiful memory she left behind.
