- I extend my condolences and offer my prayers for Carl and for you, his family. May God give you peace and comfort. I am a 2nd cousin of Carl, Dick, and Arlene. My sister, Kathleen Schullian Leo and I enjoyed a good visit with Carl after Arlene died and I gave him a candle with her name on it. I shared memories with him of our childhood days.. We had some good laughs. May he enjoy his new life with God. .
- Eric, Curt, Marti,
Our deepest condolence's are offered to you and your entire family.
Carl worked with our great Uncle Ed Lansing at Mids Lumber. Growing up we would go to Mids Lumber for all our projects. I have many found memories of hearing the stories at the counter. Carl was a great business man. May the perpetual light of his soul shine down from heaven during this most difficult time. Your entire family will be in our prayers.
