My uncle Carl was a hero to me. When I Was a little girl he took me fishing and he loved me. my memories are of a man that loved life, Jesus, family and he was a bright spot in my life along with Aunt Helen. Nobody will ever know when they came to the cabin in Sale Creek that it meant alot to me. i loved uncle Carl and Aunt Helen.

Patty and Steve - my heart goes out to you and your family at this time of grief. My Father went home to be with Jesus at 86 yrs. Viewing the MEM photos brought back many pleasant family memories. The love for your Dad was conveyed through those pictures as well as spoke highly of him and his love for the Air Force. Know that our prayers are with you.
