My condolences to the Carraway family. I taught Victor at Roosevelt High School. I don't remember all of my former students, but I remember Victor. He was always smiling, very mannerable and he was a good student. May GOD bless and comfort your family until you meet him again.

Our condolences go out to Roberta and Delores and the entire Carraway family on the recent passing of Victor. I will always remember the days at First A.M.E. Church when Victor and I were in Sunday School in Mr. Worthington's class where we became good friends. He will be greatly missed by all of us who knew him well.
