    Uncle Carl was an absolutely wonderful uncle. I believe he and Dad are probably playing a little baseball now. I believe Dada is talking to both of them as he finishes each sentence with “and uh”. We love you all and are praying for you. Love, Sam & Anne

    We are so sorry to hear of “Tip’s” passing. We always enjoyed seeing him at the family reunions. He was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Rayburn & Genie
