  1. What a wonderful life she led! She truly lived every day with purpose and an active mind and body. We were so lucky to call her Grandma, and we will miss her impeccable style, wonderful sense of humor, and her warm and loving spirit. Sending all of our love to Grandad- her true and faithful love. They had such a beautiful marriage that we all admired so much.

  2. I was really saddened to hear about Carlene’s passing. Even though there were several years between us I always looked forward to seeing my cousin in Mineola when I was a little kid and we would visit. I always had momma ask Uncle Carl if she was going to be there. Her smile always brighten up the room and she had great hugs and praises for everyone. I know her parents and my parents were waiting at Heaven’s Gate to meet her along with her sister Daisy Pearl. Momma & daddy were always so very happy to see Carlene and Ross when they visited at the assisted living.

    I’m so sorry for your loss Ross!

    Until we meet again someday!
