    Shirley and family: I was saddened to see the obituary for Carl. My sister and brother, Gerry and Lee Roy (Heise) had just talked about how our families always visited back and forth and the fun we all used to have. While the promise of God’s eternal life gives us much hope and joy, it is still a sad time to lose a loved one. May your memories fill you with smiles during this difficult time. Please give my condolences to Ivan and Paul, also.
