Memories Timeline


  1. Carleen was apart of our family growing up. She was the sweetest person anyone could have ever met. She was taken so young but she has no more suffering. I enjoyed chatting on messenger. I am so glad I chatted with her last week. Our prayers go out to her family and friends. 💕

  2. My deepest thoughts and prayers are with Carleen's family. Our families grew up on the same street and we all were friends. I knew Carleen when she was young and she was always so happy. May God comfort all her family and may she RIP.

  3. Fly high on angel wings my dear old friend and classmate. GOD bless and keep you for all eternity😇

  4. Rest easy my friend & cousin. You did very well during your earthly life, a living daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, grandmother, cousin & friend to many. We’ve made many memories throughout our lives which will have to hold me over until we meet again. You will be greatly missed. I love you!
