I'm so sorry to hear of Lady Carroll's passing. We started to school at Nations together and went 12 grades in the
same class. Also I was often at her father's store and went to Sunday school and church with her at Poplar Creek
Nations Baptist Church all those years. She was a good friend and always a lively person. She was like family.
