I will always remember Carey as he was a sincerely caring man, great father, hardworking and a fighter for life. He seemed to always have hope and a sense of humor even when not  feeling his best!  After a devastating hurricane (Florence) he was traveling from the peidmont to the shore. Under one roof .... a family man that loved with all he had and that lives on eternally. May your family heal and have hope and courage and Carey's spirit love in all our hearts forever. Sincerely with love and sympathy, Patty White
