So sorry for your loss. Your and Barbara are in our prayers.
Carl & Barbara,
So sorry to hear of your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I am sorry for your loss. Your parents were like a second set of parents to me. I think I was at your house more than my own when we were growing up.
Wayne. You and I grew up together and seen each other almost every single day. Mostly because of all the people our dads were around, they chose each other as best friends and I always thought that was pretty cool. I’m glad we grew up together and I can’t think of a better person to have been my dad’s best friend. My love, heart, and prayers go out to you and Barbara. Love,
A great man loved and missed.
