“May GOD comfort the family. May God bless Carmelita's soul as she enters eternal life on the other-side, with her husband Russell. Russell was my classmate in Sac City schools. I have visited Cedar Cemetery, outside of Lytton, Iowa many times. I have family (BAICHTALs & HUFFs} buried immediately to the East of Russell's grave and then South to the entrance. I'm also retired Air Force.

We will keep you close in our thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks as you are going through your process of grieving. Eternal rest grant unto her soul and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul rest in peace.

Joselito Uy and Family”

“Words can not say how much aunt Carmen & uncle Russ have meant to me for more than half my life. The best vacation we ever had was going to mountain home, then camping in the mountains with them. That's one of the many memories I will always treasure. Uncle Russ & Aunt Carmen will always live strong in my heart. Until we are together again, take care of Danielle & all the loved ones we've lost. Love you forever and beyond 💗❤💖💕”
