  2. My dear friend Barb Sending you and your family Gods Blessings in the passing of a really loving husband, father, grandfather, and great/grandfather. Karl will be missed by many friends and his wonderful loving family. My heart and prayers are with you my dear friend.

    • I am hurting for y’all becase I know how much you miss him and will continue to miss him all the days of your lives. Not like you, but I will miss him, too. He was a always a fun uncle, and always made me feel welcome and loved any time I was around him. I would say “May he rest in peace” but that’s not even close to what I want for him. May his health and vitality be restored… may he bound through the heavens seeking adventure and sowing mischief. We love you, Uncle Karl!
