I am so sorry to learn tonight of the passing of Carlton. If I had known I would have been there today. Carlton was such a nice person and a pleasure to work with. RIP Carlton I know you are with Jesus and you have no more pain. I can’t remember you without a smile on your face. To the family left to remember you, I am sure they will always have you in their hearts. May God wrap his arms around you and be very close at this painful time. Marilyn Hicks
