Carla was a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and our best friend. Carla,
you had a heart of gold. You gave to family, friends and total strangers
and never asked for anything in return. You were the glue to our
family. We cry for you daily and will always miss your smile, laughter
and love. You could light up any room. You will never be forgotten. You
were the strongest person we knew and you fought a long battle. We are
relieved that you are no longer suffering but our lives are changed
forever. Carla, you will always be loved and missed.
