Not sure what to say?

Roberta and family: You have my complete sympathy at your loss. Carl and I go back to the early days of the Breakfast Optimist Club, and later Lincoln Library, and I've missed his company of late as his health deteriorated. But he fought his disease like a trouper, living long past when anyone would have predicted those many years ago, when his symptoms first surfaced.

To the Volkmann Family,
I am sorry for your loss, Carl was quite the gentleman to work with, no matter what the project. Anyone would have been blessed to know him over these many years. You have my prayers.

Roberta & Family:
May the passing of the days heal loniness and pain,
'Til nothing but warm memories of love and joy remain.
My Sincere Sympathy

Mrs. Volkmann you are in our thoughts. I had the pleasure to meet you and your husband when I purchased your lovely home in 1997. We are still in the house and love it as much today as we did the 1st day we saw it. Rest in Peace Mr. Volkmann. Pieretta Smith Patterson

We didn't know Carl very well personally, but we have heard so much about him through our mutual friends. He certainly has left a wonderful legacy for all of us.
Roberta, you and your family have our heartfelt sympathy.
