Tribute For James Thomas Carr

  1. Sending my sincere condolences to Shannon Carr and family. I first met Mr. Carr when he came into the animal hospital in the 1990’s. He was such a nice man and I never forgot him. He was always smiling. I am thankful I met Shannon and through talking could see how he was doing throughout the years.

    Shannon and Family, Please accept my condolences on your loss. Shannon was kind enough to point me towards a lovely video tribute which offered a window on a life well lived.
