    Sincere Sympathy to Carl’s entire family. I have so many fond memories of Carl. One that particularly stands out is when on buying trips, Carl would always take time to purchase Barb a very special piece of jewelry and then he would show it to all of us and carefully lock it in his briefcase. He was so proud and happy. He was a great traveler-up for just about anything! He used to love to tell stories of the shenanigans he and his brother would get into especially over on Black Lake! May he rest in God’s peace.
