I'm so sorry to hear about Karl. I taught with him, long ago, at Bellefontaine Middle School. He was always so fun, kind and helpful to this new teacher. We always had a lot of laughs and he taught me how to keep a study hall of 40+ 8th grade boys under control. What a great man!! I'm so sorry for your huge loss and send my sincere condolences to the entire family.

Dear Family,
Butch was my cousin, and Mom's nephew and ring bearer for her wedding. We kept tabs on all of you, through Aunt Sis. We are so sorry to find out that Karl is now gone. We know he is with the Lord, but that does not make it easier for all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers. He had a great life because of all of you, so may you be blessed with peace that can only come from the Lord. Our hearts are with you at this time.
Love, Deb and Aunt Doris
