A big thanks to Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow for all that they have done for us throughout this difficult time. I am so glad that my Dad's forever resting place will be here- I love you all- Amanda Amanda Abrams, September 27, 2004 I taught with Carla at Bear Creek Elementary for the last seven years. Over the past couple of years, I saw a woman with such love and devotion in trying times. Carla has always put others before herself. None was more effident than in the past couple of years with the love she put forth in caring for Rick. I know that he is being taken care of now with the same love in heaven that Carla showed in caring for him on Earth. Rick leaves behind two beautiful children and a wife that will forever carry his memory in their hearts. My condolences to Carla, Mandy, Brian, and their extended family. My you find peace in your lives.
