I fondly remember Carin from our time working together at the Brookdale Library. How funny and sweet she was. My heart breaks for her family, whom I know she held dear.

To Dad, Mom, Pam & Dale
I want to Thank you all, for taking Care of my Sister 24/7 & how Strong you've been through this "Nightmare" w/Sam. We will cry together, but eventually
[even already] Laugh, because she was a character.
1 of a Kind to say the Least!!!! we know the stories!
We will carry on w/our lives now, as she wanted us to do this entire time, She did not want us burdened w/her
situation, that is how unselfish she was. We will be strong together as we always have, but now even more as she taught us the True meaning of Courage!
We will never be the same w/o her, but we will be stronger because of her!! Sam is Amazing and I miss laughing w/her !! she was so Funny! She will now Lead me, as I should have done for her!
Love you all, especially Sam, we will miss her forever
but I know we will meet again.
This is not Goodbye Sam, and Please put in a good word for me there, as I need all the Help I can get.
Your Loving Brother [Smiley]
