Carl and Sofia were so very kind to our entire family. We spent so much time together in Grandview and Columbia, Illinois. We were grateful for the time they gave to our children and the many visits to Illinois. We will miss Sofia so very much! Our sympathies to Earl, Carl, and Lisa. We will be thinking of you and your families. Love to all!

I have so many wonderful memories with Dad and Sophia. We spent so much time together for so many years and they were always so welcoming to me and my children. I hope Lisa, Carl and Earl are comforted by the fact that they had wonderful parents.
