Gary,Eddie so sorry to hear of Carl’s passing.He was a good friend.I always got a kick out of hearing all his stories about growing up fishing with his father and his trucking adventures with Bens Bread.No matter how he was feeling or what was going on in his life he always would have time to joke around.Carl would always kid with me and would finish his visit by saying I’ll keep an eye out for you.He was proud of both you boys.Rest in peace friend.
