Not sure what to say?

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family! Karl and i met while studying engineering at Iowa state! He was a great guy and will be missed!

I am so sorry to hear of Karl's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

I used to work with Karl (and Karen) at the Midlands 4 Theatres when it was the bustling movie days. Karl was always a clean-cut, sharp-dressed gentleman, even though he was in his early/mid teens. I didn't expect him to be anything different as he got older. Even though I didn't keep in contact, I often remember the Midlands 4 days. Peace be with you, my friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Karen, I'm sorry for your loss, too.

We are so sorry for your loss we are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Jen, Luke, Rachel and Anna,
We are very sorry for your loss, please accept our deepest sympathy.
Krysty, Carter and Kinsley Hinman

Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Let us know if you need anything.

I have known Karl since grade school and he was always a very good friend. He will be missed. May the family have comfort in knowing that Karl is home and that he lived his life knowing that this was the ultimate gift. May God Bless you and yours during this difficult time.

It was sad to hear of Karl's passing. I respected his skill as an engineer and admired his passion for life. He will be missed but thought of often. My prayers to his family.
