    It was an honor to call her friend. We will remember many good hours spent with her. We loved her so much and will miss her dearly. She is now reunited with many family members and has met the Lord she served so well for so many years. God Bless you, Carrie. Our prayers are with Wanda and the family.

    My Sister Carrie lived a long happy life. She had an interesting life. I lived with her in Macon , Ga and we both worked at Robins Air Base. She was a welder on Airplanes. I just sat and made dog tags. We lived in a girls boarding house and had so much fun. I envy her a bit as she got to see the two little sisters that died before she was born. That must have been exciting as well as seeing all the family gone on before us. See you soon :SUSTAH: as we called each other. ‘

    Oh I was so saddened to hear of Carrie’s passing. I grew up on Rockland St and Carrie was a great friend to my aunt Mary who lived next door to her. God bless her and all her family. I am so sorry for your loss.
