John Carroll memorial set

Memorial set for Monday, June 22 at 11:00 a.m. in Lexington, KY, according to post on Caring Bridge:
The Struggle is Over
By Lee Carroll 
Six months after the onset of symptoms, John’s unfortunate encounter with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease ended this morning. He was blessed in his lifetime to have a career he loved, friends he cared deeply about and a family who adored and respected him.
The cards, letters, emails and messages he received from all of you were a source of great comfort to him. Thanks to each of you for taking part in supporting him.
There will be a memorial service for John on Monday, June 22 at 11:00 am at the First Presbyterian Church in Lexington, KY, with a reception following.
A friend sent me the following quote:
"We all die.
The goal is not to live forever.
The goal is to create something that will."
I think that John succeed in doing this.
