I am deeply saddened to hear of Uncle Carl’s passing and I send my condolences to the Haveman family. I have many fond memories of Uncle Carl and will remember him as the great man that he was. I am grateful for Aunt Mina and Uncle Carl’s hospitality throughout the years as well. Many conversations and meals shared together with Uncle Carl will never flee my mind. His contagious laugh and knack for story telling offered a window into his life, past and present. Watching him and my grandfather interact as brothers tend to do was endearing and from all of this I am appreciative for the impression that Uncle Carl has left on me. I was once gifted a John Deere hat from him and when I see it I always think of him. Finally, Uncle Carl was an honorable man and I am lucky to have known him and have learned a thing or two from him along the way.
