Dear Karen and family. Carl was such a loving and caring man. He will be truly missed. We had so many greal times when we visited and on trips together but now he’s on the last trip. Have a great trip and see you soon Cuz
My wonderful brother and friend…it was so hard to see you struggle. You tried until the end. I am so sorry for the pain you had to endure.
I love you and you will alway s be in my heart.
I cannot believe how the passing of Carl has affected me. He was my friend and co-worker for 27 years. We shared our Navy stories and other memorable tales from our past. Sweetest guy I’ve ever met. Someone you would want to be like. So even tempered, never seen him get mad except when something happened to you, he would be upset for you. Very lovable man whom I was honored to know. My only regret is that I wasn’t closer to him all those years. I knew he suffered in his last months of life, we discussed it often, but I am relieved that he suffers no more. God bless you and your wonderful family Carl. I’ll see ya on the flip side my brother. Anchors aweigh m’boy!
