A memorial service will be held in Moab this spring.

We would also like to thank the nurses and physicians at both the University of Utah Medical Center as well as the San Juan Hospital in Monticello.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Utah State School for the Deaf and Blind, any birth defect program, or any organ or body donation program.

Carly was a special girl, loved by all who took the time to know her. She never met a stranger and called everyone a “goof.” Carly loved being outdoors, swinging on the front porch or sitting in the sun. She loved going for rides, especially on a four-wheeler or in the Jeep. She loved taking short walks, watching “Mash,” QVC, or any cooking show that involved Paula Deen or Rachael Ray. Carly always had her headphones on listening to her favorite music while reading her cooking magazines or supermarket ads.

Heaven’s Very Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from Earth.

“It’s time again for another birth.”

Said the angels to the lord above.

“This special child will need much love.”

“Her progress may seem quite slow

Accomplishments she may not show

And she will require extra care

From the folks she meets way down there.

She may not run or laugh or play

Her thoughts may seem quite far away.

In many ways she won’t adapt.

And she’ll be known as handicapped.

So let’s be careful for where she’s sent.

We want her life to be content.

Please, Lord find her parents who

Will do a special job for you.

They will not realize right away

But with this child sent from above

Comes stronger faith and richer love.

And soon they’ll know the privilege given

In caring for this gift from Heaven.

Their precious charge, so meek and mild

Is Heaven’s very special child.”
