Not sure what to say?

I had the privilege of seeing Dr. Carr as a patient when he was practicing at Palmetto Richland in,Columbia,SC. I had been in a wheel-chair for 8 months when I first saw him. He had me up and walking with the aid of a walker after leaving his office that day. He was also kind enough to refer me to Dr. Samuel Agnew in Florence,SC. so I wouldn't have to drive so far for my follow-up vists. What a wonderful Dr. he was. I am so sorry of hear of the loss of such a kind and caring physician.

Dr Carr had been my Dr for 2 years and had just sen me on the 28 of Dec and had talked about how spending Christmas with family was all about. He did surgery on my shoulder and gave me shots to the knees was always so kind. I will miss that smile also. I will be praying for his family and colleages because like them my heart is breaking.

I worked with Jim as his secretary at the Medical College of VA during the years of 1997 to 2000. He was a kind, well-educated man who always helped others, and was very dedicated to his family. He will be missed by all who knew him. RIP Jim. Blessings of comfort to your family.

I have not seen Jim in some time, that is my loss. He always had a smile on his face and when you ran into him it seemed like he had just met his long lost friend. He will be missed by all those residents who would have benefited from his expertise and passion for education. My deepest sympanthy to his family.

I worked with Dr.Carr as his receptionist at the west main street in Salem location. He was always kind and respectable. I am so thankful to have known such a caring, thoughtful man. Prayers and love to your family.

I have known James from the day he was born - big, saucer, blue eyes and a huge smile that he grew into. He is greatly missed by Michael, myself, Shirley, Linda, Eric, David and Briget. We are his brothers and sisters.We all loved him very much. Thank you all who signed the book. It gives us great comfort.

I had the privilege of being Dr. Carr's trauma fellow in 1996/97 at MCV in Richmond. He was an extraordinarily skilled surgeon and an excellent teacher. I am grateful for the year we spent together. He improved the lives of thousands of patients, and taught scores of residents and fellows, setting the finest example of professionalism, honesty, compassion, and skill. “Try to make it perfect,” he told me in the OR. As a mentor, he was as close as you could get.

My sympathy goes out to Jim's family. I had the pleasure to interact with Jim over the years as a colleague in South Carolina and as a fellow orthopaedic trauma surgeon. He was a great clinician and teacher. I will miss him.
