Carl was our back-door neighbor for 22 years. He and his parents were a family of the most wonderful people we ever met. Carl took care of his parents as they aged and through final illnesses. Then cared 100% for the love of his life, Marion. Our family will never meet another like him. Carl loved "purely, fully, sincerely, and with gentle humor. He was easy to embrace.
He tried his best at everything he did in life, every day, all day... always. We wish we could have helped him more in his later years.
While sharing the same back fence, we had many laughs over our garden challenges. His tomatoes grew bigger, better, more... lol and he loved the peppers that we canned for him. Christmas was a holiday that we shared with our children and Carl and Frank. He was always interested in our children, what they were doing, their grades, their activities and he was just the sweetest to them on their wedding days. We truly loved Carl. He was a proud soldier in the army of Christ. We haven't been able to see him since we live in South Carolina but he was always on our minds. He was a gift to our whole family. Rest in peace Carl.We love you Hugs!
