Not sure what to say?

Dear Carla and Russell, Just read about the loss of your father Carl. He was such a wonderful neighbor. Moments I remember are when he used to take my sister Janet and I to the Y&W with you and Russell for a movie and to play on the toys and his preparations for his trips down south. I also remember Carla's wedding and how proud he was as he walked her down the aisle. He always had a smile. As soon as I saw his picture I knew it was him. May he rest in peace.

Grandpa you were one of a kind. The best grandpa any girl could ask for. I will miss you so much. I love you!

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Uncle Carl will surely be missed. Loved all the times we gathered. May the Lord comfort the family and may we all gather again in our heavenly home.

Goodbye Uncle Carl. I have many fond memories that will be cherished forever. You will be missed dearly.
