Shelia and family I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed talking with him while I sat with Linwood at Brookdale. I pray Gid comforts you and your family.

I send my heartfelt sympathy and love. Carl loved music and I enjoyed sharing that with him at Friendship Adult Day Services and before I had the privilege of meeting him, he was a caller at Shallowford Squares with my mother-in-law. Thanks for sharing the love of music....
