I am so sorry to hear of Karl's passing. I always liked him and remember him as a child. He and Judy used to babysit me as a young child. In later years mom and I enjoyed his and Judy's visits. His children were all so beautiful, precious, lovely and mannerly,
I send my love to all of the family. God bless all of you, Colleen
