    I am sad that I had not communicated with Carrie recently, and I would have been at the service if I had known in time. I didn’t hear until this afternoon or I could have driven home. I am thankful to know that now Carrie is at peace and will be able to enjoy the eternity assured her by her faith in our Savior. I know she is dancing, painting and visiting with saints that she knew and loved here. Maybe even her cat Buddy and her dog that she loved for so many years.

  6. To the Priest family with my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from the promise by Christ Jesus that there is going to be a resurrection of those that have fallen asleep in death.(John 5:28,29) When Jesus was on earth he performed many miracles including the resurrection of his friend Lazarus.(John 11:11,43) Under God’s Kingdom, Christ Jesus will raise our loved ones on a global scale to live on a paradise earth. That was God’s original purpose for mankind in the first place.(Psalms 37:10,11,37). What a beautiful future, and to see Carrie again!

  7. May your loved one sleep peacefully, God is near ones that are broken at heart. (Psalm 34:18; Psalm 83:18) Jehovah God promise that soon, “no resident will say I am sick. (Isaiah 33:24)

  8. Good-bye old friend. We went to China Spring. Great background. We went to Church and worshiped in Choir. You hurt your back and struggled from then on. We shared the best of friends in worship and meetings. We cared far more than you may have known. You would come and go. Receive then flee. I have been praying for you. You did not know that. God shared a glimpse enough to get my attention but i did not know where you were to share with you. I know where you are now. Having the best rest and peace of your life. ENJOY ETERNITY with Christ Jesus. Your friends will there later. Bye Carrie.

  9. Last time I saw Carrie she sang a special at her church, House of Prayer, who had loved her and validated her. She loved the Lord and sang for Him that night in July 2017. She left an impression on all who loved her. Never will forget you, Carrie. Your life had not been easy. Reminds me of a song, that has the refrain: “We’ll Soon be Done With Troubles and Trials”. Thank God for His blessed hope! See you again, my friend!
