Carley Rose Saggese Fuhrmeister, 15, of Philadelphia was a beautiful, funny, talented, and extraordinary young lady that exuded warmth, compassion, and maturity ahead of her time. We were caught in awe of her. She loved deeply and was deeply loved, by so many. Her smile was a treasure to behold. Witty and sly, radiant and loving. Her compassion reached far and wide. Children were drawn to her. She was always there for the underdog and her coaches said her positive energy drove the spirit and success of her teams. Carley was a leader and truthful to a fault. To know Carley was to know determination and guts. Carley Rose committed her life to Jesus at an early age and sadly left us too early. After passing on January 19th , she was received into the open arms of her savior Jesus Christ for renewed life everlasting. \n\nFrom the day she was born on September 2, 1999, Carley Rose filled the lives of her parents, her best friend and sister Elizabeth, her large extended family, and many many good friends with her full-out love. Carley had a passion for the performing arts and sports. She was involved in countless activities in the community, at school and at her church. Some of her favorite activities included; Irish dance, singing and performing with "An American Celtic Christmas," basketball, soccer, softball, cheerleading, and youth group. Whether on a stage or sports field, Carley was passionate about everything she did. She was a fierce competitor. She was a shining star. She was as comfortable in an evening gown as with fishing and hunting gear. She was always ready for the next adventure and surfing was her newest. Carley Rose was a gifted writer, song writer, and artist. Following many years with the school morning news, Carley aspired to be a broadcaster or in advertising. The impact she had on those around her was clearly shown by the countless number of people who packed the hallways of Aria Hospital on Sunday night with prayer. We will not forget you sweet angel and know that your life made a difference in so many others. Carley Rose continues to impact countless more lives with the gifts of life through her organ donations. \n\nHers was a rich soulful sound, that when she sang you knew Carley Rose had a much deeper appreciation for the meaning than just notes on a page. As she sang with the song "At Last", her soul cried, "My love has come along. My lonely days are over, and life is like a song. And here we are in heaven for you are mine..."\n\nHer family was blessed by the village that helped raise her including: Berean Bible Church and Youth Group, Christian Life Center, Parkwood Panthers Elite Team and Youth Organization, Mast Community Charter School, Academy Sabres, Celtic Flame Dance, CYO sports, YMCA, Girl Scouts of America, Mayfair Monarch, Chrispin Cheerleading, Fleisher Art Memorial Center, and her voice coach Joseph Amodie.
