I remember him being a sweet friendly man. He almost always attended the
Family Reunion. He would tell me at every reunion "I used to carrry you
around in my arms when you were a little baby." I'm going to miss my Uncle
Carroll at our reunions. Loved him dearly.

I remember him when I was a small child. He stayed with us a while. He always attended family reunions. He was a good uncle to me. I will miss him dearly.
