My family and I lived down the street from Bob and Carlene when we lived in Jackson, Tennessee. These two amazing people and their dog Peetie where like members of our family (part of the better members of course).
I considered Carlene my trusted confidant and wise mentor. I am so thankful that I got to see her one last time when I visited Jackson in June of 2016.
My sincerest sympathy to her sons and their families.
It was my pleasure having known both Carlene and Bob. I feel my life has been enriched in the knowing.
