Carrie kept  this Native American Prayer handy, and it  expresses her sediment to all her family and friends.

                                                "NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER"
                                        I give you this one thought to keep-
                                          I am with you still- I do not sleep.
                                          I am a thousand winds that blow,
                                         I am the diamond glints on snow,
                                         I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
                                            I am the gentle autumn rain.
                                     When you awaken in the morning's hush,
                                              I am the sweet uplifting rush,
                                             of quiet birds in circled flight.
                                        I am the soft stars that shine at night.
                                               Do not think of me as gone -
                                       I am with you still in each new dawn.
