My “Cookie” I’m really going to miss you my sister/cousin! I have so many memories that I will cherish forever. To my family, I’m praying for us all and although we’re hurting, we can be at ease cause she’s no longer in pain. Love y’all! “Weeping May endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning!” Love, Vette! Fly High Carla T, you’ve got your wings!

Please know caring thoughts are with you during this most difficult time. I know your hearts are heavy right now and the pain of losing Carla Michelle is great. However joy of welcoming her back in the resurrection will be even greater for God has promised, "Your DEAD will LIVE. Awake and shout joyfully, You Residents in the Dust!.." (Isaiah 26:19) Until then, may these words give you hope and bring you peace.

Carla also know as MzCookie Michelle Taylor on face book. I remember her as a young girl coming to the True Light Baptist Church with her Aunt Jeanette Lake, however my most recent memories are of the two of us as Facebook friends. I shall miss her but I will never forget her... Thedosha (Teddi) Patterson Baker
