  1. Carla, You became my friend in Jr High after moving from Evansville to Owensville. You were a great friend and we had a lot in common including music. We enjoyed band, choir, and many other activities in school together, as well as overnight stays at each other’s homes. I didn’t see you much after high school but I still considered you a good friend. When I came back to IN from Texas, you welcomed me with banana bread. Thank you for your good heart and friendship❤️ Many prayers for your entire family🙏
