Although I did not know your loved one personally, I am truly sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in Gods promise found at Revelation 21:4- “And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more…”

Uncle Carl seemed like a great guy. I really enjoyed the visits with him and my dad the last couple of years, getting to know Carl, Helen and both of you. May God Bless all of you! My favorite saying from him was, I would have taken better care of myself if I’d have known I was gonna live this long!
