It is said that when you cry- you cry alone; but, that isn't true. The sadness you are feeling is felt by loved ones around you. Our loss here on earth is the Lord's gain in Heaven. May all of the family members find comfort in knowing that you're not alone. Your family is in my heart and in my prayers.
Uncle Carl was very special. He was a very kind, loving, caring Christian man who loved his family deeply.
May God Be With Each Member of Uncle Carl's Family.
With Deepest Sympathy, From Carl's niece
Sue (Heflin) Proffitt
