We are beyond grateful to so many of you who have reached out in love and kindness to us during the sudden illness and death of our precious and irreplaceable daughter Caroline. Her funeral was Friday the 12th and she was to have been married in her dream "beauty and the beast" wedding on the 13th- she was buried in her wedding gown. We were honored to have been her family and grateful for every day God allowed us to enjoy her kindness, infectious laugh and unconditional love. We are blessed to know that she is with the Lord- her passion for Christ was never a secret! We covet your prayers during the dark days ahead πŸ’• God bless you. πŸ’•Proverbs 17:17 "A friend Loves at all times" . Dr Welch, Patrice, Lauren and Haden. ...

Wanda A BurgamyThere are no words - but we pray for comfort and peace to cover all of you. I know you know you will be reunited one day but that doesn't make the here and now easier - just promising. Hope you guys will make your way to Manteo Baptist Sunday for homecoming so our church can show you love. Service is at 10 with food and fellowship to follow and we would love to see you all. Until we do - Gods arms and our prayers cover you all.1 month ago   ·  2

Elaine LuboschI just didn't know what to say on Tuesday, and I was so upset about Pixie that I just couldn't concentrate. But I am so, so, sorry for your loss! She was soooo sweet. When my trainer and I brought in Carly for a little checkup, she told me all about her wedding and Beauty & the Beast since I never got to "see" it. You guys are definitely in our thoughts during this awful time. πŸ™ <31 month ago   ·  1
