  9. This was a beautiful going home service for Carl. By chance I talked with him recently by phone. He was at work at the time. Just in our short conversation, all the wonderful things that was said about him in the service today just confirms what I felt during my conversation with him. I wish I could have gotten to know him as I know some of my other nieces and nephews.
