    Sincere condolences and sympathy to the Smith Family. Mr. Carl touched so many lives . He would always kid me about how I would cut my son’s hair 47 years ago. He knew how to bring on a smile. He will be missed.

    Dear family,

    My heart aches from the grief that you are suffering.

    Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue looking to him when ” He will wipe out all tears
    from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21: 3,4

    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ”
    1 Corinthians 15:26
    It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the
    past and through Christ the resurrection of our loved ones.

    We ” do not sorrow just as the rest do who have no hope! ” 1 Thessalonians 4:13

    love from a stranger,
