My prayers for each  family member as you grieve the homegoing of this one who loved Jesus so deeply. He was always filled with gratitude for the work of the Lord in his life.  And it was a life well lived in service to his Lord and Savior. He is now truly home. Free to breathe deeply. The incense on the alter is said to be prayers of the saints rising to the throne of God.  How many did he offer in his 85 years? And now the sweet aroma is his to breathe. I know Jesus said, 'Come on home, Carl.Well done good and faithful servant."

I had the pleasure and honor to know Carl in his later years, and came to know him as my brother in Christ. Carl made a profound impact on my life in a short time through his humble and gracious demeanor , combined with a genuine Love and zeal for Christ . Psalm 73:26 reads ; My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the stenth of my heart and my portion forever.  Carl personified this scripture in his life. I can only imagine how many familiar faces Carl is seeing now in his heavanly home in light of all the seeds  planted and lives effected to the Glory of Jesus Christ , our Lord and Saviour . My warm and heart felt condolences go out to all his loved ones who like myself will miss his earthly presents.

Bob and I worked together for many years and I depended on his expertise and good nature to see the job through.  Not only a good worker, he was a good man with a sense of humor and a sense of professionalism. 

Our condolences to his family.
