To the entire McCarroll family. Fred, you snd I have been brothers since the days of Campbell Friendship House when we were 3years old. Your family became my family; mine became yours. We graduated from high school together, were roommates in college and served in each other's weddings. You're my best bud and my heart aches for you in the loss of your dear sister, who was also my sister. Joe and Brian, I pray asking God to cover your family with peace during this time of bereavement.

I remember Karen as a kind gentle spirit devoted to her family and church. She fought the good fight with bravery and courage. Her physical presence will be missed but her love and example will endure. Diane and Billy Pratt
