If our mother had the chance to write this herself she would have said “All of my life I have been surrounded by friends and family, and I even liked some of them! I have seen some of my favorite bands in concert, I’ve ridden motorcycles. I’ve had adventures unlike any other, and then I made a family with my husband. Ah well, you can’t win them all! All Jokes aside, thank you all for being a part of my life. PS, you’ll never find the money” all the while laughing as we each read it. We love you mama, fly high and enjoy your last ride. Remember it’s just a myna injury, don’t forget the sprouts, we’ll make Adam put the guitar down, now take the last word.

 Carla is preceded in death by her parents, and adoptive parents Inez and Vincent Hyatt.
