 Carmen you were the kindest friend to me. I will never forget how you gave so much of your time training me at DFP when I first started working here. And I will never forget all the fun times we had shopping and running all around Carlisle! And for all the wonderful meals you made for me when I came to visit you. You were like a sister to me and your advice and direction in my life is priceless. I will miss you so much but I am comforted in knowing that you are with your husband Tim (honey) now and that I will see you again when it is my turn to go home. I love you, your sister, Tracy
