For Carrie the Holy veil has parted
She who walked in faith
Now lives by sight
With all the joy of God imparted
His love and His delight

She has not gone, but is gone ahead
Following where her Shepherd led
After wandering this world so long
Her mighty King has called her home

  1. Carrie was so beautiful!!!! I remember when they would come to Oklahoma. We would all get together at grandma and grandpappy Humphrey. And I would sit in her lap and she would paint my fingernails!! I loved it so much. What a strong lady!!! Can you imagine the happiness when she arrived in heaven. “What a day of rejoicing that will be”

  2. I pay tribute today to my sister Carrie Lou Keenan. She slipped away to her eternal home yesterday at the age of 89. I will forever be her little brother. I have so many fond memories of her – like the time we were riding our horse Tarzan. I was about 3 and she was 10 or 11. She told me to hang on to her. But I was too big for that. Suddenly I was on the ground screaming I am dead, I am dead. As soon as she knew I was ok, she gave me one of her famous lectures about minding her better. Then there was the rooster who had radar. No matter which door she tried to go out from our home on Hattie Holland’s farm, Mr Rooster would attach and send her back into the house. It was about this time that she thought she had killed our 16 yr old brother. They were milking cows with Carrie between her cow and our brother’s. He decided to milk her back pocket full of milk. When she realized what he was doing, she got up and threw her stool at him. He ran out of the barn to avoid the stool, only to trip in fall at the very instant there was a loud clap of thunder. She just knew she had killed him before he stood up. So many memories. My late wife and I got married in her home in Oklahoma in 1954. I will never forget the instructions she gave me as to my duties on our wedding night! And she had eyes in the back of her head. Terry and Randy were playing with the water hose, which was absolutely against her rules. They were on the north side of the house where there were no windows or doors. Suddenly from the west side back door she yells “You boys quit playing in the water”. One of the boys was heard to say “She must have eyes in the back of her head”, when in reality she heard the electric pump come on from the water well.
    We shared the loss of our oldest child in the same year, 1996. Through the years, with her in Cali and me in Texas we stayed in touch to share the bends and turns of life. I knew she always had my back and that I was always her little brother.
    Rowland, because of your love and caregiving, her later years enjoyed some of the best days of her life, knowing she was loved unconditionally.
    Carrie Lou and I also shared an all in faith in the saving power of the blood of Jesus. So sweet sis, save me a spot next to you and I will see you again when it is time for your little brother to join you. Eternal love and Rest In Peace.
