I was saddened to hear about Carl. We were good friends at National Gypsum. He was once my boss and taught me how to be a foreman. He taught me so well that I later became his boss. I also enjoyed joining him on the bowling league. He was a good man and a good friend. My family will keep your family in their prayers. I know the feeling oh so well. I lost my father the day after Thanksgiving 2010.

To the Family:: After having read about loved one in the obituary, it brought to mind the promise that the Bible holds out at  Revelation 2l:3,4 where it says that the Grand Creator Jehovah God will wipe away sickness and death forever. (Psalms 83:18) It is at that time all the pressures of this world will be gone and people can be happy and enjoy life like we were created to do. I am sure that your loved one; and many other people, would enjoy living at such a time and that is what Jesus' words promise: "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29) Many families like yours will reap rich blessings and be reunited with their lost loved ones.(John 17:3) I truly hope these scriptures can be of comfort.
