You will be missed Uncle Carl. You always had a smile and a kind word for me. Your generous heart made everyone stop and smile. I have loved you since I met you all those years ago when you fell in love and married my Aunt Barb. Other than my father, you were the kindest man I have ever known. I hope to see you in heaven one day. I will think of you often and remember you with a smile. Love always, Lisa Austin
