Dear Carla Don,
One long year has passed since God called you home.
You have been in our hearts and thoughts every day.
We love you so much.
If tears could build a stairway and memories could build a lane
We would walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
"A million time we needed you, a million times we cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a special place no one else can ever fill.
Carla Don, it broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for a part of us went with you, the day God called you home."
You will always be our "Precious Angel" and will be forever missed, Mom, Dad, Mary Beth, Josh, Matthew, Aunt Kitty, and Uncle Jim
