My heart breaks for the pain your are going through Anna, you and your entire family and community have suffered an enormous loss.

It is in very poor taste and disrespectful to print a picture of Carla's killer in the same article as her. This article highlighted the good works, generous heart and love of family and community Carla showed year after year.

If you haven't lost someone due to the careless, selfish and illegal acts of another then you don't understand the additional pain and suffer this family is going through.

A person driving drunk, and with drug paraphernalia in their car, passing in a no passing zone, around a blind corner, chose to wipe out any good they may have had in their life. The lack of proper judgement and self control, took the life of a devoted mother and grandmother, while losing their life in the process. This has set off a chain of events that has irreparably ripped apart two families.

Having suffered the loss of my younger brother at the hand of another, I understand the anger and frustration directed towards Ward. Additionally having lost my mother early in life, I also understand how hard it is to say goodbye and try to pick up the pieces and go on.

I am deeply saddened that I will not have the joy of sharing the birth of our newest grandson with Carla in September as planned. But I will always let him know that he and all his family are loved and watched over from above.

Be at peace dear Carla, you made a difference in so many lives and will be deeply missed. \

Much love to Tony, Allan, Anna, Andrea
