Robert Dale Carson -
As a fellow veteran I had the opportunity to visit with this man twice. Both were a genuine pleasure ! He was one of those people that you would have liked to have known earlier in life.
I join his family in regretting his loss.

It was a pleasure to meet Mr. Carson and have him join us in the Memorial Day parade. I will forever remember the smile on his face and the way he waved to everyone that day. Thank you for allowing us to spend this time and appreciate him and the other veterans for their service. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of this very special gentleman.
