  1. Dear mama,
    I will miss all of the great up roaring laughter we had together. There are no words to describe the amount of love I feel for you. We were not only mother and daughter, we were best friends. You loved me to pieces, too. There is a great sense of emptiness knowing that I will never have anyone love me quite as you did. Thank you for letting me know of your love, constantly. There will never be anyone quite like you in this world. Carla Becker will always be one of a kind. I love you so much forever and always.
    Your daughter,
    Carrie “Bunny” Becker

  2. Carla was more than just my mother-in-law, she was like a second mother to me, and thirdly, a friend. Over the past 25+ years, some of my most favorite and laugh out loud moments have been with her. There is so much I’ll miss about Carla, but I will love her forever and we’ll all dance together again some day.

I am so very thankful we got back in touch a couple of years ago and stayed in touch until you just couldn’t. I will love your daughter as she is you and she is Lou. I vow to stay in touch w/ her to honor your memory. Fly to the Heavens my friend, I’ll love you always.

  8. Carla was such a beautiful soul. As the eldest of all of the cousins, I had the privilege of watching them all grow up. Carla was special from the very beginning, with the sweetest disposition and the most generous heart. Her smile could brighten even the darkest corners. She also had an indomitable spirit that made everyone around her break into joyful laughter. Carla never complained about anything in her life. We spent many hours laughing so hard we could scarcely catch our breath. I’m going to miss those talks. However, she left her bright light with me that will keep me smiling for the rest of my days every time I think about her. Her road was often rough but she walked it bravely with a dignity that few of us have. I can only hope that I can follow in her footsteps. Rest well, my sweet Carlita. You live on in my heart until our souls meet again one day. I love you as you loved me.
