    Carl, you were the best little brother a guy could have asked for. I am so sorry I wasn’t there when you needed someone and now I can never make up for it and that really hurts. My Boys really enjoyed coming to see you and really loved you a lot. I know you’re in a better place and your with some wonderful family members. So until we meet again, I love you and will miss you Little Brother.
