We have known Carla for the last 20 years, and Carla had always been very kind and loving to us. She is now in a better place, we pray her rest in peace and she will always be in our hearts..

  8. I was filled with such sadness to hear of Carla’s passing. She was such as sweet, caring lady. I had the pleasure of working with Carla for 7 sevens. I was immediately drawn to her at work because she possessed some of the same kind, loving qualities as my mother. She was a great friend and I enjoyed being in her company. She will be deeply missed and always remembered. My deepest sympathies to the Alexander family.

  9. I am so sorry to hear about Carla. I worked with Carla for almost 12 years. Some of those years, we shared an office. We would share stories of our families at happy times and sad. She was so proud of her family, especially, Amy’s and Michael’s accomplishments.. We talked about her little dogs. My thoughts and prayers are with Carla’s family.
