I was sorry to hear about Carl's passing. I always enjoyed our conversations over the past 50 years. I am sure he will reunite with old friends in heaven such as Mr. Mayfield, Bobby and Harry Gause, Inman and A.I. Smith and many of his customers who have passed before him.

My sincere thoughts and Prayers are with Gregg, Chris and the whole family. Carl was an awesome father, friend, husband, grandfather, sports fan and an all around great guy. He was always seen at the ball parks and always had a smile on his face AND an encouraging word for you. He raised 3 awesome boys and will always be remembered as "Bags" for a very long time to come. Rest in Peace "Bags".
