Not sure what to say?

He was an incredibly patient teacher, be it medicine or fly fishing, two of his passions, and an amazing diagnostician.

I have great memories of Dr. Carlson and Carol! He worked for my dad, Dr. Merritt, at The Dolores Medical Office! He was full of life especially at my mom’s dinner parties! Nothing will ever top Carol’s homemade rolls!
I hope he is having dinner in heaven with my mom and dad!

He was the best and most loyal friend anyone could have and a big piece of me went with him.

He was a beautiful person, and was always a joy to be around. He always kept me laughing while I worked with him.

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

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
