    Iwas deeply saddened when i learned of carl’s passing.
    i was a customer of Carl’s for many years. i always
    looked forward to his service calls. He was always
    so efficient . I never had to worry that he would leave
    any thing undone. many times he helped me with odd
    tasks that i was unable to do. i will miss him greatly.

  5. I miss you Dad. I’m trying to stay strong but I don’t know how to go through the rest of my life without you. Your advice, your jokes, watching Family Fued together, calling and asking about a sound my car is making, digging holes in the heat, listening to your stories about Vietnam and having you teach me to do manly things, like you and Mom always said im the son you never had. Haha. It hurts to think you wont be there if i get married again or buy my first house. I disappointed you so many times and you died before I could make you proud again. I promise to make sure the kids find your star at night and I promise to always make sure Mom is ok. Ill make you proud by loving my family so incredibly fierce, just like you did. Thank you for choosing me. Thank you for being the Dad you didnt have to be. Thank you for being you. I miss you Dad. Youre in my heart forever
