    “Granny” Carr helped raise all of us on Veterans Hill in one way or the other over the years, and she was always a wonderful person. She is one of the few people from my past that has always made a point of asking my parents about me, and it was always good when I got to see her and tell her about how things were going in my life. She would never hesitate to tell me if I was doing something I shouldn’t be, but she always did it with love. She will be missed.

    I am very sorry for your loss. Georgia always had a kind word and a smile for all. I recall many many times walking past the house and she and Charlie were on the front porch in the swing.

    She always took the time to care.

    My prayers are with you.
