Sending our deepest sympathy to your entire family. Mr. Carol's passing was a shock to us and he will be greatly missed. He was wonderful with the boys of Boy Scout Troop 86 and they enjoyed all the activities with him. Thank you for allowing him to spend that time with our boys. Looking at the photos you can tell he really loved being with the kids. Again, we will miss him and we will lift up your family in our prayers in this time of loss.
From the Iles family, of Troop 86.
