    To The Carden Family, So sorry to hear of your great loss. l knew Mrs. Carden when we worked at Murdoch Center. She was always so kind, sweet and just a lovely person. Such a lady with so much wisdom. After so many conversations with her you would always leave her feeling good and knowing she really cared. l know God has called another angel to his heavenly home. For her children, your mother is resting in peace. She will never be forgotten, because if anyone met her, you will always have fond memories of her in your heart.

    Sallie Carden went to Creedmoor High School and was in the same graduating class as our mother, Mary Lou Lloyd. Years later they would also attend Fellowship Baptist Church and often sat together. They had nicknames for one another. My mother was Lupey Lou and she was Sallie Wallie. It was so wonderful to see them greet each other with these nicknames and oh, how they would talk and laugh with such joy while reminiscing or just catching up. Our deepest sympathy to the family and a special thanks to Linda for sending such wonderful cards to our mother when they were no longer able to chat with each other on the phone. Now they are happily together in the presence of the lord.

    Our Deepest Regards,

    John and Sheila Allers, and Karen Lloyd
