Your Mom was always such a lady. It was our fortune to have known her and dined with her many times. May she rest in peace

Dear Carey Family:

I was saddened to hear about the passing of your beloved family member, Ms. Regina Carey. From my conversations with her son, James Carey, I knew she was a wonderful person and touched a lot of people's lives throughout her lifetime. If I may, I'd like to leave with you one of my favorites verses from the Book of Corinthians.

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God." 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
