To the family of Carmen:
Sincere condolences on your loss.
Have known Carmen since 1978 - at least. She was a wonderful
seamstress, taught a few of us how to make teddy bears, great times. we had. at her home on Westmorland. We had kept in touch through the years, only this past May, saw her in Montgomery Village, she seemed quite content and happy. She was a true English Lady.
Dwell on the happy times you shared and find joy and peace.
Best wishes, Terry Mitchell
