I am sorry for your loss. Aunt Carrie was always the best. I have so many memories of spending time in White Plains as a kid and going to the mountains when mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was like a second Mom. My Mom's sister and was always her best friend. They spent numerous hours on the phone together and enjoyed so many trips and loved shopping and going to the beauty parlor every Friday. I know she will be missed but I rejoice that she and Mom are together again.

Aunt Carrie was my mothers sister and one of the sweetest ladies I ever knew. She always understood how I felt when mother and I would see things differently. Her belief in me meant more than she ever knew. As she and mother aged, I would love to go and pick her up from the nursing home so she could come and visit mother. They loved each other so much and grew closer after they lost their beloved sister, Anne. Those three ladies, my mother, Elizabeth, Aunt Ann, and Aunt Carrie were all beautiful women, great cooks, and wonderful mothers. If they had a fault, it was loving their children and grands more than life itself. As my precious cousin Linda has stated, they are together again and I can assure you all, they are watching over us. To all my cousins, the funeral was beautiful and sharing today with you all meant so much to me and my family. Love, Annette
