Ric Carroll, known by many as the "Mayor" of El Jardin, was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gherigs Disease) in 2013. This nasty disease has taken away everything from him. He is on life support, a feeding tube and can no longer walk or talk. On May 27th 2017, after many trips to and from the hospital, the antibiotics have stopped working and his body is no longer able to fight the infection he has. The family has now had to make the very hard decision to bring him home with Hospice. He is loved by soo many and all of your thoughts and prayers have truly been felt by his whole entire family. We are blessed and very thankful for everything everyone has done for us. Your love and support means more than words can describe. God Bless You All.
