I loved going into Stage III and seeing Carla's beautiful smile. She was always sweet, funny and unfailingly kind. I will miss the warmth of that smile and her friendship. She was definitely one of a kind. I love you, Carla; rest in sweet peace.

My love and prayers go out to Cheryl, Alex and the rest of the family.
