      Grew up on the same street with this family. Carrol was one of my best friends in high school we also worked together rebuilding Incubators to hatch eggs. Lost Carrol way to young. Winford and Helen were great parents thought a lot of them. Jackie and Lonita spent time at our house with my Sister and younger brother and me. Our prayers go out to this family.
