My prayers are with your family. I knew Carmen and Steve when we went to Central Christian Church together. I also taught at CHS for many years and knew Steve when he was our football coach. They were a wonderful couple and I have fond memories of both of them. May you find peace in knowing she is with her Savior.

Please know that you and your family are in my prayers.
I have such sweet memories of your mom, especially during our jr. high years, as a kind and gracious woman welcoming me to your home for hours at a time!
May the Lord bring you comfort and help and hope.

Jill, I am so sorry to learn of Carmen's death. She was very dear to me when we lived across the street and I loved seeing her when you and my girls were playing together as children. Looking back, it was a kind and gentle way of living. I feel blessed from knowing her. Love to you and your family.
