To the family of Carl Culver,am so sorry for your loss but just know that the Lord can give us peace and comfort in times like this. Our Christian brothers and sisters can and are a blessing that will lift us up to be stronger in spirit. They were a big help to me when I lost my daughter in January of this year. Will miss him at the convention in Knoxville, always tried speaking to him if I got the chance. Will miss his testimonies as well.
