    Nancy, I always enjoyed being around you and Carl. I got to work with Carl out at Lucent for a short time before he retired and spent many a cold morning with him hunting, shooting or just having fun with him and dad. Kari even got to come out and shoot once or twice with him. He was an upbeat guy and really enjoyed himself. Prayers are with you and your family today and always, Doug.
