I am so sorry to learn about Carl. He worked for me as a contractor with SDT doing SONET work for AT&T. He was a sweet man and so easy to work with. I know he will be missed by family and friends.

Loved Carl! Carl was the first person we met in our neighborhood when we moved from Houston in 92. He was out walking and we stopped to talk to him. They had moved here from Dallas. We asked if he like it here, he said "love it! A bad day here is better than a good day there!" That was the beginning of a great friendship with their entire family. He was always helpful, funny and a great family man. He will be missed! We love you Lynette and Heather! We'll always remember him.
