Carl, you will be greatly missed by loving family and friends. Your uniqueness is one of a kind. Your shoes that light up, your F you necklaces and shirts, but mostly your sense of humor and witty comebacks. We met you 3 years ago this month and you were ill for 2/3’s of these years. I’ll never forget how upset you got when I fixed the fence that you were planning on repairing when you got better. I was hoping you and I would have “other” projects to conquer when you returned to a stronger status.
Know this my friend, your memory and legacy will live on through the lives you’ve touched through the years!! Much love and rest in peace!! Now, go make the angels laugh!!
