  5. My Dear Sweet Carla – What do you say to a very best friend of 63 years? We have been through it all together – happy times and sad times but it was always “OK” cuz we had each other. We had such a special friendship that not many people are lucky enough to have. Thank you for being that special someone! I will always cherish you. What ever happened in my life good or bad I would always say “I’ve gotta call “Car”. We made it through everything because we had each other.

I’ll never forget those things and the sweet soul that you were. I have cried a million tears for you but find solace that you are finally free from pain and that you’re with God as it was Him that sent you here to us as an angel who touched so many lives. I will love you always. -Theresa
