"Dear Friends and my Beloved family,
As I am getting older, I am becoming more forgetful, and it is possible that one day I might not know where I am or who I am or even more important who you are.
So, I wanted to say a nice clear-headed goodbye and thank you to everyone while I still have my wits, or at least still some of them, about me.
I have had an exceptionally good life and I hope none of you will be offended if I am confused later on. The real me inside here remembers each one of you very well.
Carleen, Me Now loves you."
