It is with the heaviest of hearts that I announce the death of our founder, my father, and my best friend, Jim Caroll Sr.

Pops was a true self made man. He built all that we have from absolutely nothing, fighting through it all with courage, kindness and generosity.

He blessed us all by instilling those virtues and strengths in us, in me and in my sisters, and in our team here at LV.

We will forever mourn him, and miss him, until we see him again.


Donations can be made in Pops’ honor to the Bella Moglie Fund, a group that my father founded to give direct aid and comfort to women suffering from stage IV metastatic breast cancer, shortly after my mother’s death from that very affliction.
