On Wednesday night when I picked up my Daily Times Herald newspaper my eyes were drawn to Jeff Storjohann's photo of Carroll Fire Department's Tower 8 supporting the American flag outside Holy Spirit Catholic Church. Butch Heman's story about the visitation and funeral mass for nurse and paramedic Sheryl Stoolman made me feel like I was there. I did not really know Sheryl but I wish I had. This story has stuck with me since I first read it almost three days ago. I asked myself why has this story had such an impact on me. I have always said that Carroll is Carroll because of the people who live here and that there is the answer to my question!
