Sending all our thoughts, love, and prayers to Susie and Randy, for the days ahead. It’s been years since we have seen Carl, but always thought he was an outstanding person. Him and Larry spent lots of time together in high school, they both loved football. We all married in 1972, very young and clueless, but we all figured it out, and grew up. Rest In Peace Carl.

So sorry to hear of this loss. It's been so long since I worked for Ruth Godwin and Susie and Cathy. My thoughts and prayers are for you today. Aren't we thankful for the promise of the resurrection! Indeed, this will only be a temporary time of separation and we will spend eternity with each other. And Carl has now seen the face of his Savior!
