Condolence & Memory Journal

We were saddened to hear of Carroll's passing. He was such a good friend and wonderful neighbor and we looked forward to his arrival in Bradenton every winter, along with his lovely wife Fern. Then after Fern suddenly passed, the special times of sitting around the fire pit, when the Hoosier's were not playing basketball of course, were even more memorable especially when I would make him a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows. We will always remember the good, kind man he was and how blessed we were to have him as our friend and neighbor for many years. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry we can't attend Uncle Carroll's funeral. He was so loved by his wife & family and leaves a beautiful legacy with his children & grandchildren.
He had the patience of Job with all of us learning how to water ski on Lake Gage.
He & Aunt Fern are together again & smiling down on their family.
