“Tell ya’ what”….. is how Carroll’s stories often began. And they were incredible, but also terribly credible because they were mostly about our family (which is a very twisted tree indeed)….and we knew the characters in his stories well enough to know that he painted just the right pictures, with just the right colors. Carroll was a southern gentlemen above all else. He loved his sweet Miss Emma more than all the leaves that fell from their trees and you know there was an endless supply of them. To describe him to a stranger I would say, well, I can’t do him justice, but….Carroll was one of the most charming, sweet, generous to a fault, loving, honest, trustworthy, handsome, belly-ache funny, kind, impassioned, opinionated, thoughtful, and dear men that I have ever had the honor to know. He is so very loved and will be so very missed. I know that he knew that.
My heart is with you EJ,
