    Uncle Carol was one of the finest men I have ever known. His gentle and loving ways were always a comfort to all who where blessed to have known him. Being a true gentlemen he always had a kind word for everyone. I loved my uncle with all my heart. We have lost a special man but heaven gained an angel.

    My brother-in-law was more like a brother. He was always there for our family. There was never a time that if I needed something, I knew he would be there for me. He was always a gentleman. He always smiled and told you he loved you. He will be missed greatly. I love you Carol and look forward to seeing you in Heaven. I know God prepared a special place for you.
