Carl will be missed by all! He was one of the most genuine guys around. Always so positive no matter what was going on. Diane you both were so in love and it showed with every action. You completed each others sentences and lives! So sorry to have missed Carl's celebration of life. Rest in Peace Carl.

second father to my kids, Uncle Carl but did not want to be called that. Taught us and the kids so much about things and life. One of the most hard working men I have ever met in my life. Will be so missed but will live on in all the lessons and memories. We love you

Carl... I love you more than anything else in the world, and have since the day we met. My sun has risen and set by you. You will be missed EVERY SECOND of this life that I have here on Earth until I see you again. You made me the happiest person in the world the day I became your wife. I did the best that I could to keep you happy and healthy. I fought God every step of the way not to take you back home with Him. I have enjoyed spending more time with you in the last 6 months. We had so many plans and dreams to still do. I miss you, baby. You are my rock and my guiding light. Although I will miss you forever I am glad you made it back to the place of being pain free that you were at 7 years ago for that short period of time. I had more time to enjoy with you, and certainly wish that there was even more time. Rest well now, honey, your pain is gone. You are forever in my heart. Love, forever and ever. Diane.
