Lila and family.....we are so sorry for your loss. Carl was one of our favorite people of all time! He always made you feel good with his smile and happy demeanor. We left the Mt. Olympus 2nd ward over a year ago, so we've been somewhat out of touch. Just wanted you to know we're thinking of you and your family at this hard time.
