Carl was kind, generous and loving. He listened well and made you feel special because he was genuinely interested. You felt good being around him. He made you laugh?A LOT. He was patient. He was fair and good. He shared himself, his time and whatever he had gladly. He loved to learn and try new things with enthusiasm so infectious and with a sense of humor. He always wanted to become better, improve himself, and grow. He was thoughtful, considerate and a team player?pitching in, offering his help ALWAYS. Down to earth, approachable, he was easy to be with. Not a mean bone in his body or an enemy in the world or a bad word to say about anyone.
I write this tribute to let you know him somehow and yet, I feel it is inadequate if you?ve never met him. How can you know him from a couple of paragraphs and a picture? My hope is that you?ll feel like you know him because as you read these words it will remind you of someone you know.
Carl reminds you of your son, your older or younger brother, your cousin, or uncle. Yes, he is your nephew or your grandson. He sounds like your best friend-he was part of your wedding party-you grew up with him. You went to school together. You played hockey and tennis, bowled in a league, and skied in Vermont. You set up tee times with him and drove to Myrtle Beach in the spring. You traveled to Vegas or Atlantic City. He was your co-worker, neighbor, your newspaper boy or the guy who helped you move-3X. He was the guy you called for ?just one? drink after a stressful day at work. He was there for you when your kids were born and asked him to be their godparent and when your parent died he grieved with you. He?s the Go-To guy when you just needed a rock of support for whatever is happening in your life and the times you wanted a cheerleader by your side.
If you?ve never met him, I hope you are lucky enough to know someone who reminds you of him. He was all these things and more. We who knew him are grateful for our times together and wonderful memories we?ve shared. He made a difference in our lives and the reason why we grieve his loss so deeply when we are reminded he is no longer with us.
