  1. Carroll has been a shining beacon of kindness, warm acceptance, dedication to the gospel, service to others, and love for his eternal sweetheart. I don’t recall ever hearing an unkind word from him, but instead always positive and upbeat conversations, even as his failing health quickly overcame him.

    We love Carroll and Mary dearly, and pray for comfort and peace for Mary. We will miss this truly exemplary companionship.

  2. Dear Mary, Debra, Dan, Karen, LeeAnn and Tom. I’m so sorry to hear of Carroll’s passing. I have fond memories of him and your family. I will always appreciate our families friendship. Mary & Carroll were always so good to my mother. As a young man Carroll taught me a lesson that I still use today when i work with young men. I hope that you will find peace and comfort soon. May the good Lord bless you with wonderful and warm memories.

    DeVon & Wendy Gledhill
