To my cousin Sedonie and family,
Sincere condolences to you all on the passing of Carl.
I met Carl many years ago and the one thing I remember about him is that every time I see him he was always smiling. He was indeed a joker and overall a very pleasant person to be around.
Carl took great care of his wife and kids. He loved an early morning walk as he carried his news paper along.
Sedonie, CJ and Robertha, may God's peace comfort you in this time of grief.
On behalf of the Findley family, please accept our sincere condolences. You are certainly in our prayers.

Carl you had such a lovely smile, I use to remember you coming to our house to have a drink with my Dad and sharing a story or too and having a good laugh. I know that my dad really enjoyed those visits and he as well as the rest of the family will miss your visit. I am just so happy that you didn’t suffer too much. Rest In Peace my dear Cuz in law, I will truly miss you and I am so happy that I was able to speak to you the week before you said your good bye to this earth.

I had the honor of working with Carlos, he was great family man and always talked bout his family. One thing in common we both had
we worked in Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 for a couple of years he was a contractor for a well known company and like wise. We shared some experiences together , some laughs. He was a stand up man. God bless to his family and so sorry for your loss. May the Lord comfort you all. Rick R

To the family of Carlos Vassell:

It was with great sadness that we learned of Carlos's passing. He came to work on my team at WDW and from that point on he became a very good employee and a cherished friend. Carlos was a dedicated employee and always worked to advance the goals of the company. My family and I developed a great fondness for him as he was always a gentleman and very friendly when you were in his company. We have to share a personal coincidence between our family and Carlos - he was born on March 14 which is also our daughter's birthday, he passed on September 26 which is my wife's and my wedding anniversary. There was a silent connection between us which neither of us ever knew. We certainly will miss him and will keep him and your family in our prayers. God bless.

John, Gail and Lisa Coussoule
