    We were sad to hear of Pearl's passing. We always enjoyed seeing her at the Carroll reunion and the Persimmon festival. She was one of Dale's favorite people. ✝ RIP Pearl. Mary Ann and Rick

    Dora Bradley was the best ever. Most of my happy childhood memory's was because of her. She was a warrior who defeated many serious health issues many many years. She's the only human being I know of that caught the deadly Covid-19 virus becoming extremely ill from it at the age of 96. And only remain sick for 4 weeks, and fully recover back to full strong health & continue as if it never happened. I'll always think of you alot Grammaw, And miss your presence and the love you always blessed us with. Can't wait to depart this life to join you.
