I am so sorry about your loss. I was hoping to share some encouragement from the bible that is found at acts 24:14 and that mentions that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. So we have a beautiful hope of seeing our loved ones again. I hope this helps.
I am very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort through God at this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 May promises found in the scriptures bring you hope of a future when God, by means of his son Jesus, reunites us with our loved ones that have passed. John 5:28,29
I was just thinking about Miss Carrick after someone asked me who my favorite teacher had been. She was my 1st grade teacher probably somewhere around 1970 or 1971. I will always remember her as the kindest woman and teacher. She took the time to reach out to me, the shy little girl who always felt invisible. She gave me a ride home one day after school when she found me walking a far way home, and I was always in awe of the beautiful lady who always was poised, neat, fashionable, soft-spoken and kind to everyone. I’m sure it was hard to be one of the first lay teachers with a bunch of nuns, but she got along with and was admired by all. I never heard a bad thing, and never forgot her impact on this shy little girl whom she made feel important. Thank you for sharing her with me, I only regret seeing this too late to tell her in person. I’m sure she knows now, though. 🙂
My deepest sympathy on the passing of Miss Carrick. She was my (i think 3rd or 4th grade teacher) at St. Bridgets when I was in elementary school in around 1966 or 1967. Remembering her being so kind hearted, and one of the best teachers and person I will never forget.
It was with great sorrow that I just learned of Kathy’s passing. Always a favorite cousin, we had lost touch after my sister’s passing in 2017. Past family reunions at our farm and visits to her house at Christmas, remind me of our shared childhood experiences. My sincere condolences to her loved ones. Her memory will live with me for my remaining time and with the many students she touched over the years.
