Hello Agnes,  I just discovered Carl's passing.  I want you to know you two are good people, always kind and considerate.  Your lives are a reflection of God's word.  My heart is heavy today but Carl has graduated and is in God's presence.  I know from my near-death experience the peace he feels.  We love you.

Agnes, I am truly sorry to hear that Carl passed. We were brothers in Masonry as well as a friend. I am so distressed that I never got there to visit y’all and attend his services. God bless you.
