We are very saddened to hear about Carmie's passing , but very peaceful knowing she is in the loving arms of our Savior and can see all her precious family and friends who have gone on before her. She will be deeply missed.

We have many precious and happy memories of Carmie. We are thankful for all the unconditional love she not only showed our family, but to people all around her. She always had an encouraging word, even when she was going through a hard time herself. We had fun playing board games with her as well as countless art lessons. Our family loved viewing her book full of sketches. She tutored in sewing as well. Will miss her deeply. Love and prayers, Christopher, Tori and Family
