    Jimmy, Shirley and families I am truly sorry to learn today of Carole’s passing. Since I live in Hickory I sometimes do not know the Taylorsville news. I know that God has shown His love through caring friends, comforting memories and moments of peace. Praying He will give you continued comfort and peace. Blessings from the Father.
