Ali & family,
We are beyond honored to have been Cary’s friend and neighbor the last 16 years. Together we “grew” into adulthood and figured out this parenting thing. Ali was his world and I only wished every little girl could have a dad that adored them as Cary did her. Our two boys, Aiden and Harrison loved being around Mr. Cary. They spent their childhood playing with Cary & Ali in their driveway or on the half moon behind the alley. Every time I heard them scream, I knew Cary’s clown costume made an appearance! He never got mad when they ding-donged ditched him, always supported their school fundraisers, and went out of his way to make them feel welcome. My mom truly considered Cary a second son and let’s not even talk about her dog, Joe Doggie. We had to pull him out of Cary’s garage on a daily basis - that was a bit embarrassing, but even the dog wanted to be around him. We will treasure our precious time with Cary.
Ali, Lisa and the Werner family will be in our thoughts and prayers - May you Rest In Peace Cary and know you will be irreplaceable.
With love,
Rachael & Iain

Mr. Werner , Christian & family . . . the Werner family provided me some of the happiest childhood memories I can recall. Meeting Mr. Werner, Cary & the boys through youth baseball and remaining good friends with Cary through high school. Many fun days hanging at the house ( Briner if memory serves me correctly) playing video games with the crew and listening to music. Cary taught me to drive stick by letting me drive his car out to Ryder P.I.E and back home while working for Mr. Werner .

Mr. Werner . . may strength & perseverance be granted to you , Christian and the family at this most difficult time. I hold you in the highest regard . . I still share baseball memories with my wife of you calling me "Silky" & you drinking your RC colas at practice. You were the best coach I ever had and I had the most fun of all my baseball years being taught by you. You were a most generous , caring man to me and I will always hold you in the highest regard.

May the Werner family be uplifted and strengthed in return for the love , care & kindness your family demonstrated to me and everyone your family has influenced over the years.

I am very saddened and will miss my long time friend . . .

Cary, you will be missed, my friend. I remember first running into you through Cadbury. She spotted Luna on a walk and came running out. They played together all the time, and it gave me the chance to get to know you. We golfed together. We shared a great meal at Husk down in Charleston. I was really honored by your friendship, and loved cutting up with you out on the green. I'm honored that I got to call you a friend. I'll miss you man.
