Heartbreak for many of us in the loss of a beautiful spirit and old soul. It has been many years since I have seen Ara. However, I will always remember the sweetest and most jovial grin given each time we would meet while saying my name. It was then followed by a genuine warm tight hug. Carrie, Aiden and Cash you are in my prayers each night as I go to sleep. May God give you strength and find peace in your time of need. I love Carrie.
