    R.L. and family,
    Just wanted you to know that I will always fondly remember the multiple times I was priviledged to visit with Carlene and enjoy her many stories of family and Sanpete Valley history and her life’s adventures. What a Gal! She was so fun to hear and talk to and so loving and concerned for her family, children and grandchildren at all times. She was such a great example to me of perseverance in the face of her many physical, etc. trials. God bless and comfort you all.

    RL and my other Family,
    Carlene is going to be so missed by me and my Sister from another Mister (Melanie). I know I didn’t get to come visit her as often as I wanted to, but I had weekly updates from Melanie about what was happening with “my other parents” you have both meant so much to to me over these past 40 plus years. I always enjoyed spending time with the two of you and felt completely at home in your cozy little home whenever I came to stay. I’m going to miss you Carlene so much. May God bless your family until we all meet again. I love you all!
