    To the Carnahan family,I Ruthie Low had such a beautiful pleasure of caring for your dad and mom. My heart was broken when I found out. I was out of work because of an car accident. Had to go through neuro-therapy. I thank the Carnahan for trusting me to love and care for the most loving example what marriage is all about. I will miss you PAPA DON ado affections called him. My deepest condolences to the families. I will forever miss my papa

    We are so sorry to hear of Don's passing and so thankful our paths crossed. We were blessed with his friendship and will always remember his kind and caring words and sweet smile. Don and Imogene you will always be a special part of our lives.

    All four of us Carnahan kids were greatly blessed and privileged to have such amazing parents, who always put us children ahead of themselves. Dad and Mom's generosity was overwhelming and lasted right up until the time they passed from this life into heaven. They will not be forgotten.
