With sincere sympathy on your loss. I didn’t know Carl personally but I read his obituary and realize we both graduated from Lane Tech High School. It was awesome he got to see the Cubs win the World Series too. May All family and friends take comfort in knowing that Carl will return to the days of this you as promised at Job 33:25.

I and my wife, Susan. have been missing him on the walking track. He was a delightful walking partner, off and on, for quite a few years. We never knew his last name - just looked forward to spending some time in his very up-beat company when we enjoyed the indoor track together. We extend sincere sympathy to the family.

I offer my condolences to family and friends. I didn’t know Carl but his smile in the picture is welcoming. May the ‘God of all comfort’ strengthen you through this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
