Aunt Carla will be missed. We remember her and Uncle Virgil's yearly trips to California to visit my mother and stay at the mountain cabin. I remember buying 2 or 3 flats of strawberries from the roadside fruit stands to take up to the cabin. We learned fast that Aunt Carla was not to hold a flat on her lap as we drove. It would end up empty by the time we got to the cabin. I remember no sooner than getting in the door at the cabin, that Aunt Carla would say who's ready for a card game or dominos. The group would start playing every morning even before they had coffee. I guess the addiction to coffee was superseded by their addiction to cards. I remember Uncle Virgil and Aunt Carla carrying a big duffel bag of oranges onto Amtrak train to take home. Uncle Virgil's Bag was so heavy I couldn't lift it. Aunt Carla would even leave cloths at my mothers so she could pack more oranges.

We love you Aunt Carla
James and Huong McCormack
