I met Karl several times and it was my pleasure to have known him. Everytime I saw him he would always have a smile to share, it was easy to see why Melanie and Mike enjoyed his friendship so much. He was an angel on earth and now he flys with God's angels. "When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust him fully and let to, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, or He'll teach you how to fly!" Revelations 3:8..

Karl was a friend of mine since we were very little. The first time I met him I was about 3 years old. He was always such a good friend to me when other kids could be so mean. He had such a kind heart. I had the honor of talking to him not too long ago on the phone. I will miss you my friend.

Apr 27.10 from Sharon "Clark" True:
Dear Family, I was sad to hear of Karls passing. I have not seen him in many many years but I do remember him coming out to our house or at a function always on the go. He loved the outdoors and getting dirty with his dad. No question on that. I remember him always picking at his Sisters and they would get so mad. He could make us laugh. He will always be remember and missed. He will be in your hearts always. God bless and my prayers are with you.
