My sincerest condolences to the entire family on your loss. Carleen was one of the kindest people I had the privilege to work with at WSI. She always had a smile and helpful attitude. She will be remembered with fondness and deeply missed by everyone who knew her. With Carleen’s deep faith it is reassuring to know she will now be another angel watching over us. With all the prayers being said for the family it is my hope that time will bring peace and healing.  ~ LaVal Eberhart
