  2. I had the privielge of teaching Carley while she was at AMIKids–Southwest. She was a sweet young lady who will be missed. Praying for God's peace to surround you all during this time.

  3. I really have never picked a candle out to burn in memory of someone, but as I viewed the memory of Carley and I saw the candles…I picked the one with the biggest flame, because I knew that symbolized what she meant to each and every one of her family members. She was the biggest and brightest flame in your lives. I am truly sorry for your loss. I don't know much of the family personally, but I have been in bible study with Ms. Shirl for over 10 years, and feel part of the family in a way. Shirl is very much a part of my family and we constantly pray over each other year after year. Please let us know if you need anything. Again, I am very sorry for your loss. Sincerely, S. Shaver
