We are saddened by this sudden heartache for Carl’s family and friends. We enjoyed getting to know him at the gatherings on special occasion. What a sincere, caring and gentle man.
Our prayer is for The Lord’s hand of love to touch each grieving heart.

Rest well my friend you are with God now. Carl was the most loving kind man. Carl was a friend for life. He was always ready to pray when you needed it or just listen. Carl followed through with his works, if you needed anything just let him know. Many times I would come in from work and find my yard mowed, he knew I could not do it. He loved unselfishness , always saw the good in people , but most of all he loved his ministry and his God. I will miss you my sweet friend, and I will never forget the kindness you always showed me.
