Dear Family,
Saddened to hear of your Father's passing. Carl was a warm and friendly guy whose sense of humor matched my Dad's. They were great friends who could lit up a room when they were together! I'm consider myself lucky to have spent time with him when my Dad and I would drive up to Watertown for visits! He was a true friend and gentleman in every sense of the words. Praying for you all to be comforted by the memories you shared and those shared by others that knew him. God Bless. Sincerely, Debbie Frazzetta Van Etten

Carl was one of my father's dearest friends. The time he got to spend with Carl was very special and important to him. Once when my dad came for a visit, I remember driving him up to see Carl. When they were together they were like little kids again. Now I am sure that they are in heaven looking over their loved ones together.
