May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Sincere condolences at this time, for the entire Family of Carl Bates. My grandson Hunter, and "best" friend of Braeden, spoke in the most glowing terms about.... "Braeden's Grandpa". We can relate to this proud man's so short and wonderful life. We know Carl is in the gentle and loving Palm of God... safe forever! What a wonderful life and beautiful background Carl had. Our most sincere and warmest personal thoughts go out to the entire Family and many Friends of this unique and gentle man. God Bless His Memory and His family.. Jim, Tim, Nick and Hunter Hazelwood.. Alpharetta, GA
Thinking of all of you during this difficult time. I have so many wonderful memories of our times together. Carl was a wonderful second father to me.
