    We enjoyed Carline at the 2 cylinder tractor club meetings and going to parades. Had a nice visit with her at the Sherwood Christmas parade. So sorry for your loss.

    So sorry for your loss today…although I d I didn’t have the pleasure in meeting Carline, I can tell by what I’ve heard, we would’ve hit it off! Today’s service was small but beautiful! I’ve been so lucky to have the services with Carlene playing, on Levy United Methodist church’s Facebook page to view! It’s given me insight to her style of playing that has helped with knowing what the church was accustomed to. I hope I made her proud today in the selection of songs chosen. With respect & honor, It’ll be hard to fill her shoes as pianist but I’m sure she’ll be there to help guide us. May God bless & keep you!
