Not sure what to say?

Mr. Caroway was a wonderful teacher . But academics was not all he taught. Life lessons given freely and taught by example. He was a great friend and always had time to listen. We will truly miss him.

Dearest Mrs Carolyn & family, I am deeply saddened for your precious loss. I loved Mr. Roy. Always had a hug & a sweet smile! He will be missed here but many welcoming him to his heavenly home, including my precious mother & dad.
With love, thoughts & prayers,

You all are in my thoughts and prayers today and the days to come. I have a lifetime of memories. From the early years at Bethlehem and the later years when he stood with us when we buried Laura. He will be greatly missed and his life touched so many in his path, I know because he touched mine.

You will be missed . Best teacher I ever had

My prayers go out to the Carroway Family. Heaven had gained an Angel.

Mr. Carroway will be missed. He was a wonderful teacher, caring friend and a compassionate mentor. Never did he forget a face or name, even 35 years after he taught you. The heavens gained an angel with Roy.

To the family; you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of sorrow. May God give you comfort and peace knowing he is in a better place.
