    This is a wonderful picture of Carma. I have known Carma and Dean my whole life and had many interactions with them especially at church and in the store. It makes me sad when I see people who pass on that were such a part of my life growing up. But Carma and Dean lived a good life and were wonderful people and wonderful parents to their children. My condolences to the family. It is not easy loosing your parents but the peace and surety where they are brings much comfort at this time. My best wishes to you all!!!

    So sorry that Sister Jensen (Carma) has passed but happy that she is reunited with her wonderful husband, Dean. They were fabulous backyard neighbors and often spent time at the fence talking to Morg and Rula…and even me when I was home. Their property was always immaculate and welcoming. Loved shopping at Dean’s Grocery. You could always find goodies and kindness there. God bless the family remaining behind. Love you guys!
