Angie, Eddie and Family - Jim and I were so saddened to hear of your loss. Carl was a very special person. His smile and his voice brightened the day for those around him. We were fortunate to hear him sing several times. He always went above and beyond to help anyone in need. With God's loving hands beneath you and His arms around you, you can face whatever comes ahead of you. Our prayers and thoughts are with each of you during this difficult time.
