    I so sorry. He was a great guy. I loved him like a brother. Life takes in different places in life. We used to live to fish . The young man loved fishing more then anything.

    We had only known Carl personally for about seven years, cousins who met late in life. But during those years, I grew to love Carl like a brother. I wish we would have had more time together my friend. You will always be in our hearts. With love, Jody, Sue, Sophia, Arianna and Penny Conrad.

    Carl was my son-in-law for many years. My husband and I grew to love Carl very much. He was an awesome Daddy to Caitlyn and also to his stepdaughter, Chandra. Even though the marriage ended, our relationship with Carl never did. I loved him like a son. I will forever miss you Carl but I know you are at peace and we will all be together again one day soon.

    Carl and I for a long time where as close as brothers. Carl had a way of brightening your day when he seen you were truly upset over something… he simply was’nt having it!…. Carl would go to great lengths to cheer you up…. It didn’t matter what I went through… Carl’s loyalties always landed him right beside me. Goodbye my friend till we see each other again… My heart goes out to Carl’s family and all the peoples lives he touched threw the years.
