Condolences

We had such good times with Carl. Even though he was a quiet and private man he gave you his full attention when you spoke to him. Unless he was eating. His meal became his focus then. He loved his coffee and no one was allowed to mess with his coffee cup. He would know if you did. He did love to be among family and friends and play in his own way with his grandchildren. He was a Sweet Soul and we will miss him dearly. See you later Carl❤️ Ricky and Suzanne
