Sorry to hear of Carl's death. I attended school and played baseball with him. He was a good athlete and a good person. I knew the Henegar family well. May God grant you the strength and grace to endure your loss.

Scratch was a good friend of my husband, Bob Brewer. He served in the Army with him and was also a MP in France. Bob passed in 2009 with Leukemia. I remember Scratch as being very funny and they were really good friends. Sympathy and prayers to his family members.

Uncle Carl wasn't a "prideful" man but one place he couldn't hold his pride back. That was in his beautiful wife, Phyllis". The warmth of their home was 'evermore'. He always put his "best friend" first and foremost.
She's been one lucky lady for over 36 yrs. and will forever know she's been loved. Love you, sis, donni.
