Donald and Dorothy have been my neighbors and friends for 18 years. Don was invariably pleasant and friendly whenever we met. He was genuinely concerned about people, interested in their problems, and offered sound advice and help. I truly enjoyed our conversations, his sense of humor and his love of his family. He shall be greatly missed.

I never met Mr. Carroll, but I have the privilege of working with Mr. Carroll's son Sean. Mr. Carroll certainly raised his family right. Honesty, compassion, absolute integrity and the desire to help others can only taught by those who display, and live, these beliefs. Mr. Carroll's spirit will live in those whose lives he has touched.
