Dear Sharon and family,

We are so sorry to hear about Carl's passing. He was such a special man. We know that he is in Heaven now with his Lord and Savior. We know that Marvin Sr is probably giving him a grand tour of Heaven.

All of you are in our thoughts and prayers,
Marvin, Cathy, Sarah and Rebecca Ringer
