We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Carl's passing.  Please accept our condolences and know we are praying for all members of his family at this time.  My Dad Joffre, Carl's older brother, passed away seven years ago.  Dad used to visit Carl and Kathryn in French Lick when he lived in Indianapolis.  They enjoyed seeing each other and talking about old times and new.  I had gotten a call from Carl at his passing at that time, and he was very supporting and encouraging to us.  Now, Carl and my Dad can visit each other again.

Our best to all the family, you are in our thoughts.

With Love,
Harry and Camellia Seals

Kathy and all Carl's Family, I am so sorry to hear of Carl's passing. He was a nice man and we shared several mutual acquaintances through phone companies. I wish I could have known him better. I'm sure he will be greatly missed and I hope memories of him during happier times will comfort you at this difficult time. Praying for blessings for all of you.

Rest in peace, Carl.  You, Lonnie, and Leroy were my other family at the phone company. My sympathies to your family.
