I am so sorry for your loss. Carl was an exceptional man. I met him through the Marine Corps League and had the pleasure of sitting with him through some of the many fund raisers Carl basically ran. I loved hearing the stories he told about his family we sat at the table behind the USMC and American flags. He was so proud of you all. With deepest sympathy-

I have known Carl since he became a member of the Marine Corps League in 2013. Carl made it to all of the meetings that he could and I assisted Carl a few times when he did the Fund Raising at Marden's for the League. I will miss talking to Carl . To Ann Marie, Juanita, Lynn, Deb, Sally, Brenda and James please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss.
