My deepest sympathy to the family, I know Karl’s mom from church and I am a nurse at Active Day in Fairhaven. I truly enjoyed working with Karl And it was obvious that he loved what he did there with the members! I am so very sorry

To My One True Love

I will always cherish and hold close to my heart the many memories we shared over the almost 22 yrs of living our lives together. We thought we knew what being in love was until we met each other. We would talk for hours at night about our dreams and plans for the future. We were going to buy a RV and travel together and see all the beauty this world has to offer. God had other plans for you.
I remember our 1st date going for lunch. I ordered a chef salad and you ordered 2 meals lol. You love your clamboils and shrimp Mozambique.
I'm so lost without you we spent everyday all day together and I am grateful for that.
Very few people ever experience being truly in love with someone. Karl and I are very lucky because we did with each other. I can't wait to be with you again it wasn't enough time together on earth but we will have eternity together.

My sweet funny loving Karl.

Until we meet again
I will always love you.

It is with a heavy heart that I am here writing this, and way too soon. We all have wonderful memories of our time spent with you. My favorite memory of you is how your smile lit up a room and your amazing sense of humor . How you asked me to prom with a game of hangman during math class. Skipping class to go for lunch at McDonald’s and falling in love with you. You will always have a special place in my heart, you were my first love and the father of my son. I know that you are in a better place and that you will watch over your family and our son, and that gives me peace. You will be truly missed .

Uncle Karl there are so many memories I have of you and I'll cherish every one for the rest of my life but one that sticks out is Jaydin's first Christmas at Grandma's house when you held him you and Auntie Pam we're both saying how small he was and joking about how big my belly was if they was sure there was only one inside of me and there wasn't more you had me laughing my butt off. Until we meet up in Paradise again I love you to the Moon and back you are the greatest Uncle a girl could ever ask for you had a heart of gold and whenever you were needed you was always there especially for our family. I love you I miss you truly

Karl iam in shock, no words can express how sad we all are! I loved when we had cookouts and you always looked for the sweets. It’s 335 am sitting here crying thinKing of you. We will always keep your memory alive. Every time I see a tennis court I will think of you, a sport you loved. Hope they have tennis courts up there! Things will never be the same without you.
Love Aunt Marlene and Tom
