Becky,

You probably won't remember me but I worked with you at the Merchants Association back in 1979-80. My name was Therese Murphy at the time and I worked with Marie and Mr. McDowell. I have thought of you often over the years and, when I saw that your husband had passed, I just wanted to send you my condolences. May God be with you in this most difficult time.

First, my condolences to the family of such a fine man. I worked with Carl for a number of years at the city and he was one of the really "good guys". He always had smile on his face and very willing to help. I have since retired from the city but Carl along with "Miss Peggy" are the ones I'll always remember. Carl was always fun to work with.

Uncle Carl was a great man with many talents. I have lived my life with the great memories of Uncle Carl, Uncle Arnold, “the Hobbs sisters” and Cousin Sue as the core playing Gospel and Bluegrass music, just for our big family at Aunt Ruby’s farm house. Growing up, it seemed that we would go to visit the farm every week, although we didn’t, but we always looked forward to visiting all of our cousins, Aunts and Uncles. I’m so grateful that these families were close and kept close by the Cannady family name. I sort of followed in Carl’s footsteps with a career in Government. He always had a great garden, he loved to watch Hockey, he loved Duke Sports (I don’t), he was always joking and loved to see people laugh around him. Becky and Carl comes by every Christmas afternoon for a visit and some coffee and dessert. These are just a few of the things I think about often when it comes to Uncle Carl. I’ll add that my Dad loved you like a brother, please say hi for us when you see him. Carl lived a good man’s life, you will rest in peace and we will miss you dearly.
