You will be missed by so many, Carl was one of the greatest men I have met in my entire life. Sweetest and kind hearted but also not afraid to keep it real enough when the truth may hurt. I will cherish the times we spent fishing you showing me the best pike fishing spots on Lobdell Lake. Though we’re not blood you always treated me like a son and I admired you as a father. You’re wisdom was the greatest! May you rest in heaven with peace forever! I know you are better now. Til we meet again I Love You.
