Oranges. Always got oranges from Uncle Tom and Aunt Jackie when Dad and Mom went to visit in Florida. Uncle Tom will be truly missed by everyone who knew his kind heart. Aunt Jackie, Keith, Michael and family, Kelly and I are so sorry for your loss.

Jackie, Keith, Michael and all the family, I was devasted by the news of Carl’s passing, and yet I felt a peace by knowing that he is in Heaven with our Lord and Savior and all of his family and friends are waiting to greet him.
As for a story about Carl, I really do not have one without including Jackie, because to me anytime we all got together we had tons of fun and lots of love. I think of Carl as being my Dad’s brother, and I loved him like an uncle. I can’t wait to see Jackie, Keith, and Michael and give you all a big hug and kisses.
Love you all,
Terry and David Walrath
