    Mr. Carl was a man who by his actions taught me what Community Service and Giving back to your Church Parish was about. He was a Leader by example, and that alone motivated many who knew him to simply, get involved. There are many who command or demand respect. Carl earned mine.

    We were friends for years. We meet by our kids (Tara and Carl, Jr.) love of music. There you and Carol and I became best friends. You both help me so many times.
    Even after we lost Carol, our friendship continued. You will be missed by me and so many others. You are now another of my angels to help me in my life's journey. Love you always.
