  1. Dear Carla and Steve, so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you and praying for your peace; God bless you with special memories, and her lasting presence in your lives.
    All my love, Gina

  2. Sincere condolences to Carla Cunningham at this difficult time. Although I did not know your mother personally, I know the struggles that occur when a loved family member passes to the next life. Proper words are often difficult to express to a friend and neighbor at this time but I will be close by should you need anything.

  3. Dear Carla,
    What a blessing to have your Mom for 98 years! Regardless, no time is a good time to lose a loved one…especially your Mom.
    Please know you have my sympathy as well as prayers. May time, love of family, and faith ease your loss. The void is always with you. My Mom died in 1999 – still an empty spot in my heart. Classmate – S. Susan Herzing, SSJ

  4. Carla and family, So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. She was a very positive influence in my life when we were very young and in Girl Scouts together. Very fond memories. Wish I was able to tell you in person but just know you have my deepest sympathy and will be praying for you and your family.
