    We had the pleasure of occasionally dining with Carol and the “Golden Girls” at Cracker Barrel over the last few years. Carol always kept us entertained and supplied with napkins. Our dearly departed mother Marie is probably enjoying a good meal with her now. Our heartfelt sympathies to her family and friends. She will be missed.

    Hello to all of Carol’s immediate family & extended family.. The news of her departing, made me feel like Carol went on a trip & forgot to take me with her. Having the confidence that I will one day see Carol, when the Lord comes to take to heaven those who have asked their sins to be forgiven & prayed to receive Jesus as their Savior.
    I am in nursing home thus will not greet anyone personally but as I represent the Carrier family, I do share in your time of grieving for the absence of a very dear friend!56

    I will miss my good friend Carol Brown. I have know her and her sister since I was a little girl, We rode the school bus together. As we got older, we enjoyed many lunches together, along with Chris Alley and lots of laughter. There are many things people didn’t know about Carol. She loved my Caramel Pie that I made her every Birthday. Elvis Presley and his music made her smile every time she heard it., And she loved pictures of lighthouses. She always loved the children and babies in the nursery at church helping out with every Vacation Bible School. She loved her family. A devoted friend who would help sometimes even when you didn’t ask. (Thanks for All the memories) Your Friend, Julie Dorris 💕

      Thanks for your kind words and your great friendship to both Carol and Brenda. Both spoke of you often. I am so appreciative of how well you and your husband looked after Carol and was always willingly to give her a helping hand when needed. Friendships like yours are rare and was very special to Carol.

    I was a neighbor of Carol and a distant relative. I met your sister and dad at a neighborhood get together and from there realized that I had a distant cousin just living up the road from me. Your grand father Clifford Brown moved from Hickman Co. to West Tennessee and married Florence Escue. I am also kin to your aunt Ruby as her maiden name was Wherry and my mom was a Wherry too. I was born in Hickman Co. too. I visited the Brown home and realized he was a great veteran of WW II and rather impressed all of this antiques. I did not hear of Carol passing and did not know until the sale that she had passed away. So sorry to hear about Carol and wish I had known earlier. I have two sisters too that are both living and know what that loss would mean to me. My prayers are with you and your family.
