I am so incredibly sorry to hear about the loss of Carla. We also had lost touch over the years, but the memories I have of all the chats and laughter shared with Carla will remain very precious to me. She was a big part of my/our life/lives for a number of years. Her generous nature and huge heart were always evident by the way she treated those she loved and cared about. God speed Carla....you will be missed!! My sympathies to Freddy - Tracy - Debbie and the rest of her family.
