Her spirit lives on

A note of thanks to all of the teachers, parents and friends

of Carly Rae:

Richelle and I believe it takes a village to raise a child. This

was a special place to Carly, and like the river that flows through

our towns, Carly touched everyone in her path.

At her memorial, we looked out into the crowd and saw

so many faces that helped in many ways to raise her to be the

beautiful person she was. We want to thank all of you. We feel so

lucky to have had so many people help in the raising of our Carly.

She was a spark plug and a pistol, loved by all. We know so many

of you love her as we do. And she will be missed, but we know

her spirit will live on in all of us.

Toby, Richelle, Carly, Jenae and Amy Stauch
