I’ve been a friend of Carl and his family for many years. The most endearing thing about Carl was how passionate he was about his family, well prepared Italian food, Frank Sinatra, the Yankees and Trenton. Whenever he shared a meal at our home, he was so complimentary about my cooking which made me feel so good. He was a man of substance. I loved him very much.
