It seems like yesterday that we sit around Carroll's table and talked and remembered Marilyn. Carroll was always the cool cousin. So dear and sweet. Always thinking of others. Mike and I were always running into him at Wal Mart or what was Bilo.. If you ask how he was, it was always "good I guess for an old man" Never a complaint. He will be dearly missed. Our prayers go out to his boys. He was always so proud of you guys. May God keep you in his loving arms. Mike and Janice Banks

That little smile and the kind eyes are why I fell in love with your Dad. We only dated 6 mo. One day he came in and presented me with a diamond. If I remember correctly, he never asked me to marry him, just is that what I wanted? We set 03/18/83 as the date we would tie the knot. Of course, i took the day off but not your Dad. He never missed work unless he was really sick. He came in at lunch, we went to the justice of the peace, brought me home and, you guessed it, he went back to work not telling Anyone what we had done...got off at 5 and we left for the mountains. We always had fun in the mountains...he would always give me that precious grin and saygotta get me some cough medicine...loved it,..so cute. I couldnt live with him but that didnt mean I didnt love him...I know he always loved us.

I spent many a Sunday afternoon with Karen at Aunt Eva's house when we were growing up, and Carroll was always so sweet and quiet. Ill remember his thoughtfulness - he always had a tin of Christmas candy or cookies for us all at Christmas for the O'Dell bunch. I will miss seeing that smile on the back pew on Sunday mornings. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys.
