    Carl was a good friend and neighbor. We had some good talks when he helped me with my yard, and when he was just passing by. I will miss him dearly.

    Carl was a good friend. I miss our back fence talks and will miss seeing him out in the yard tending to his landscaping. Years ago, the neighborhood would gather in the evenings on my front porch. Carl and Bertie would always walk over for those “social hours”. The neighborhood will not be the same without him. I know he is with his wife and the angels but will still miss him. RIP Carl.

  3. Ellie Dean says:

    My family met Mr. Carl and Mrs. Alberta years ago at a restaurant that we both went to weekly. Over the years, we formed a friendship with them. When Mrs. Alberta passed, we continued to meet up with Mr. Carl from time to time. He enjoyed talking sports with my husband and kids, and he would come watch my two boys play football for several seasons. He was one of the nicest men I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, and I appreciate him treating us like family. He will be missed by us very much. His family is in our prayers.
