Carl was a very nice brother in law. He changed my life. He let a Jehovah witness come in and showed him what was in the Bible. Leon was over there. Leon brought the scriptures from the Bible to me. The verse told about what Gods name SPalms 83: 18. It is Jehovah. I became a Jehovah witness and married a wonderful man that’s a witness too. If it wasn’t for Carl I wouldn’t be so happy. See you in Paradise Carl.

I remember my Daddy bringing us to visit Uncle Carl in st. Louis Missouri. Uncle Carl would bring us out by the railroad tracks and shoot. Uncle Carl always came to grandmas house with us and I remember my Daddy and Carl walking around the house looking in the windows to see where grandma was so they would not scare her. They sure could not make it around the house without laughing. You are in a better place now RIP. My Daddy sure misses talking to you everyday. Jody
