Pat and family
Words can not express our love and sympathy of Carl. We have a lot of memories of Carl going back to High school. We kept in touch and traveled a lot even we were far apart. The trips to San Diego, Hawaii, and Branson and the guys playing tennis and of course we could talk for hours.I know how much Carl enjoyed the backpacking trip with Mack and some of his friends. Memories of those trips to get together at Mama's and Daddy's home in Knoxville. Carl will be greatly missed and our prayers are with all of your family at this very difficult time. May you have peace and comfort in knowing our promise of Life Everlasting. Let not your heart be troubled. Even though we can not attend the memorial service, we will be there in spirit.
Blessings to you and all of your family,
Ruby and Ray (Mack) McQuain
