My heart and prayers go out to guys! I remember her coming over for years and we would play games and she was always there to help me out, even if I did not ask she came over to help.

She told me a story one time about her mom and the sunrise and sunset. After being clean the sunrise and sunset became my inspiration to stay clean, she told me that her mother said whenever the sky’s a pink that it means that tomorrow is going to a beautiful day. Every time I look at the sunrise and the sunset I will think of Carla.

Our family will truly miss her.
