Carla was an employee at Sound Investment Group, where she spent many years having fun with her co-workers and aiding a large number of customers in accomplishing their financial objectives.
Carla was a remarkable artist who, despite her many talents, never boasted about them.

Those who loved her will never forget her gentle nature and infectious laugh. Their memories will last a lifetime.
