To Steven, Kendra, Ashley, and all of your families: I was so sorry to hear about Carla's death. Carla added flair and charm to everything around her. I have so many memories of her beautiful flower arrangements on the altar of Cadiz Baptist over the years. Jack and she were always such gracious hosts for church youth group functions. I also have vivid memories of going with my mom and sisters to shop at Little Folks and the way Carla brought style to our little town. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Philip Wallace

Will miss her dearly. A wonderful woman, and my friend. Our thoughts, love and prayers are extended to the family.

Our deepest sympathy to all of Carla's family and close friends. We will always remember her laughter and kindness.PPREWL
