Tim, Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during this sad time. Your bulldog friends are in your corner should you need anything. Below is a sentiment I have found helpful in times like these Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free I am following the path God laid for me I took his hand when I heard his call I turned my back and left it all I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work, or play Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that peace at the close of day If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy A friendship showed, a laugh, a kiss Ah yes, these things I too will miss Be not burdened with time of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow My life’s been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up your heart and share with me God wanted me now he set me free In remembrance, may God bless you and yours, Mike & Martha

It is so hard to imagine that one of the "Carey Boys" is no longer with us. Norman was a such a wonderful, kind man, who was always special to our family. He was a pall bearer for my Father and I will never forget that. With deepest sympathy and our love to the entire Carey family, Linda & Mike Harrington
