    Thank you for allowing me to be part of Carla’s family. I will have forever memories of the times I took her to doctor’s appointments and on the way home we took side trips to the casino for a little fun and a hamburger and french fries. Carla was always disgusted with me because I wouldn’t let her smoke in my car. In her Carla way she would always answer “oh, well.” As I told you when we talked, I learned from Carla Grace. Even through her struggles with communicating she always remained cheerful and would laugh at the situation. I am unable to attend the funeral. This is nursing home week and I have a Mother-Daughter tea today. Please know my thoughts are with you.

    My sympathies to Carla’s family and loved ones. I’m sorry I could not attend the funeral. I always remember Carla for her kindness and generosity when I first came to the Sisseton area in ’79; when Carla and Muggsy opened the home to me and allowed me to live with their family. They and the Wanna’s made me feel welcome.

    Carla was a friend of mine during my childhood days in Sisseton. We hung out together up to the day I left when I was 12 yrs old. I’m sitting here remembering the day, we were about 10 then, when she got a wart on her finger. She made such a big deal about it. I kept telling her not to touch me because I didn’t want to get it. How we ran around the park that day. I’ve thought about her over the years. I was devastated to hear she was in a nursing home. I went to see her last November. Of course, she didn’t know who I was. I shed tears but also prayed for her. My heart felt sympathy for her brothers, Ronnie & Donnie. I don’t know if they remember me. Carla was raised by her grandparents, Stella & Sam Williams. They were always good to me and treated me like family. Well, Sissy, God willing, we will meet again. Then we can sit back & laugh at our young reckless days. Rest in Peace….a friend forever…Ginger
