    Carroll was a good buddy of mine and I was terribly saddened by the news of his passing. He and I worked for the same company before I converted to my Rondell, so we had bonded a few years ago over the shared experiences.
    He was a generous and kind man to me. He always took the time to check up on me, especially during my dark days earlier this year. I will miss you Carroll.

    May you finally find peace in our Lord’s embrace my brother. We have your Watch. Rest easy. Lux Lucet in Tenebris.

    Carroll thank you for being a good friend and colleague. I enjoyed our lunches we had at BMW. You taught me to live my life to the fullest and I will definitely do that. I’m going to miss you buddy.

    Carroll was a great friend through the years. I met Carroll way back during our PMSC days in Columbia, SC. He was crazy about his children and grandchildren. His face would light up with stories about DJ and Jessie. You were a light and a blessing to so many of us you leave behind. I will see you on the other side my friend. God truly has added another outstanding son to his crew!

    Carroll and I first met at Michelin almost 25 years ago. It was twenty plus years later that our paths crossed again, and he had that same wonderful smile on his face. We shared so many times lamenting over technology, work, life and experiences. Over the past three years we revitalized our friendship, at work, over lunches and dinners, and playing racquetball.

    He was truly a brother to me and has been in my heart and mind every day since starting his battle. I never thought he would lose it. In the end when the good Lord calls us home we must answer I will miss you my brother. You will forever live in my heart and my memory.

    My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. May God keep him and may his grace shine upon him, as he rests in peace.
