Not sure what to say?

I loved hearing his stories of the grandkids. He loved his family very much. I am just so sorry to hear of his passing. I will be keeping the family in prayer during this difficult time.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

My heart goes out to the Carr family. Prayers for comfort and peace knowing that one day we will see him again. June was my brother in-law and he brought so much love into our family. First time I met him I was still living at home and he brought Brenda across the mountains to Belington to visit me and mom. He had on penny loafer shoes which had no pennies in them. I got 2 pennies and put them in his shoes. Whenever I saw him again and he had on the shoes the pennies were gone. I'd put 2 more...

Thoughts and prayers to the Carr family during this time. May God bless you and keep you. AJ was the most sweetest, kind hearted man I knew Im sure he will be greatly missed.

Thoughts and prayers to the entire family. May God be with you during this difficult time.

i am so very sorry to hear this sad news of AJ. I always enjoyed talking to him. he always had something funny to say. I would ask about his son and grandkids, and he rumble on about those precious grandkids. I'm sure they will miss him.. my sincere sympathy !!!!!

Love you and will miss you always! Dorothy Mike Danielle & Dustin
