Carl loved his family with such passion that he diligently covered us in prayer, quietly and humbly. He stepped up and served as a father, grandfather figure and most importantly he nurtured us through prayer with God’s words, when words were needed.
Carl enjoyed the great outdoors, fishing , cruising the highways with his pets. Chakotay and Fred.
Although we are mourning our loss of Carl we are rejoicing because he is in the presence of his Savior.
