"I am sorry to hear about Carroll's death. We first met when he volunteered to read with my 1st & 2nd grade students at Central Elementary School. The kids loved to ask about his ruler suspenders! We enjoyed getting to know Carroll and Barb at FUMC. Such kind people. Our condolences to all of you. Debbie & John Haywood"
