Hi Nancy, I stopped by the funeral home Monday night to offer my condolences. I couldn't stay and wait to talk with you but I signed the book. I just wanted to say how glad I am that I got to you know and Karl. I also wanted to give you my condolences. Such a love as you had will be missed. I am so sorry for your loss. You two, and Karl with his determination to get well were such an inspiration. He showed his love by doing all he could do. May the blessings be and best regards from me. Maybe I'll see you at the co-op sometime! Debbie Hickman
