Mrs. Caroline,
I am very sympathetic in your time of loss. I didn't know Mr. Carroll more than an acquaintance during Vacation Bible School at Summer Memorial, but I knew from standing in his presence he was kind and generous, as you were generous to him in his time of need. God has blessed you with a wonderful husband, and may He bless you with peace in your time of loss. The meal we, the youth, brought to Mr. Carroll in August was the only remembrances I have of him, and he put a smile on all of our faces, as we put a smile on his. God Bless You.
