There are a whole bunch of Carringer “tales” in my household tree – and this was considered one of them. Life occurs, unintentionally and deliberately, and typically a newspaper article tells us fairly a bit in regards to the bride and groom. I’m glad that I can honor Sally Carringer and La Verne Eggleston as we speak.
