His dearest friend, Jake Myhre said, “Your quiet, beautiful soul bear-hugged everyone you met.  I was proud to love you.  I was proud to call you friend.  We know not where this road leads, but you followed with contentment and joy all of your days.” Carson dearly loved his Savior, Jesus Christ, his family and friends, and especially his sweetheart Carson Stratton.
