I can't thank everybody enough for their kind kind support of me and my family during this time.
I especially want to thank my sister Maureen and my brother Kevin they have worked tirelessly these last few years caring for my dad making arrangements dealing with finances he was always so very very proud of all their successes. He's at peace now resting with my mom this fight is over. I also want to thank New Britain Memorial and Barbara for an absolutely beautiful ceremony....I truly cant say thank you enough

Mr. Carroll you will be greatly missed. Thank you for always chatting with me when I was a young girl. I was just a neighbor from back in the day but you were always so kind hearted. May you rest easy my friend. So sorry for your loss everyone
