Please accept our condolences on the passing of Carrol. She was a lovely and very gracious lady. She and Nelson introduced us to cruising in Alaska. It was a wonderful experience which led us to take several more cruises including a second trip to Alaska. She also introduced me to the fun of Red Hat ladies. And, she was very proud of her three adult sons and their families. May she rest in peace on her final journey.

So sorry to hear this - Nelson and Carol were two of my favorite people, during my formative years as a young man. Todd, Brent & Greg my thought are with you. I wish I had seen this notice earlier.

Carrol was a strong member of our extended family. After my father passed away 17 years ago, she and Nelson were great friends to my mother across the way on Ringgold-Southern Road. After Nelson passed, Carrol continued her friendship with Mom, often checking in on her making sure all was well. During our frequent visits to the farm Carrol would always be an optimist in our presence, encouraging us about Mom's independence and ability to conduct her own affairs so easily. Carrol became a similar friend to Gail, me, Mike and Ethan during my mom's later years, always making Gail, the boys and me feel welcome in the community.
Though I was saddened to hear about Carrol's illness several years ago, I knew she would face the new health challenges in her life with the same courage and optimism I observed in her over the past twenty years. Carrol will truly be missed.
