Hamson Family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Carla, mom-mom, was such a great woman and always made feel like part of the family. She always told me believe in myself growing up and was such a big part of my childhood.

Kenny and Kurt turned out to grow up and become great young men. She is a big reason why. She will forever be in my heart.

Love you all,

HeleDear Ken and family, 

I am so sorry to learn of Carla’s passing. I always looked forward to seeing her at the summer picnics and hearing her never forgotten distinct laugh! She was always so full of joy and you couldn’t help but be happy when around her. Tough shoes to fill.....but her memories should be easily conjured and hopefully sustain you through the grieving process. I am regrettably unable to attend the service, but thoughts and prayers are with you on Saturday.

Patti Root (Helen’s niece)
