    To Ann and the family: Carl drew a tough hand to play for the past several years. Many of us would not be able to bear that with so much dignity and grace. We are saddened to hear of his passing, but understand that he is on his way to greater peace and joy. So many of my interactions with him involved music in some way, and he was always very supportive of musical groups in which I was involved. We appreciated that and will miss him. Please accept condolences from myself and my family, from my mother Mildred Adams, and from my brother Glen and his family.

    Anne & Family:

    Very sorry to hear about your loss. Carl was such a strong and brave man to go through what he has over the past years. I remember he loved to dance, perhaps he’s dancing now without any limitions of his past few years. My thoughts are with all of you.
