Carol Blackwell

Had many titles:

old man... dad...carol....papa ... brother in law, uncle and for me honey sweetie but most important to him a Christian.

Carol and the Sanchez family had many adventures together...hunting ...dancing.. family parties... and yes even emu raising!

We will miss his funny ways of saying things...his first in line for family meals and certainly just his presence in our daily lives.

I am certain he knew how much we all loved him and
certain that he knew when it was time for him to leave his earthly home he would be received with open arms by his Heavenly Father God and all his family that left before him.

Our deepest condolences to all his family.

We loved our brother-in-law, uncle, and good friend Carol. He was a real Texan to us, and he always made us feel like family. Carol was one of a kind, and we'll all miss him.

Rest in Peace,

David, Lisa, Alan, and Jake
