My most heart felt sympathy goes out to all of Carl’s family. He will be missed by everyone that knew him and enjoyed the time spent with him. Carl was always there to give you a hug and make you laugh. I will miss him dearly. He has gone to a better place where there is no pain and he can serve the Lord.
I llove you Carl.

I have 45 years of memories of Carl and his family. Our children grew up together. I cannot be there for the funeral because I am in Kentucky but will send personal condolences to his children when I get back home. I am sure Carl is now reminiscing with so many from the church that went home before him. May God comfort and bring peace to each of those that are grieving their loss of father, brother, and grandfather.
