  7. My dad (Karl's uncle, Kermit), and my sister, Betty(cousin) and I were so sad to hear of Karl's passing. I had talked to him a few months ago. We didn't see each other much any more, but he will still be missed. He still had his great sense of humor even thought he didn't feel well. We send our love to the family. I remember growing up, the boys were a little older than my sister and I, so we kind of looked up to them. Our mom used to say that they were bad boys, (especially Karl and Larry) but we didn't care. They were a lot of fun! Love again to the family.Ruth Edwards (Karl's cousin)

  8. Sharon and Family, I am so thankful that I got to know Karl a little even though we live so far away. He was a good man. He always had a smile and a smart remark, God bless him and all of you. He will be greatly missed. Love and Prayers to all of you.

  9. Sharon, so sorry for your loss. We were really praying hard that Mr. Karl would continue to get better. May God grant you Grace and mercy through this trial. My prayers are with you and I pray that you will get comfort and strength from your family and friends. God Bless you.
