Carl was my idol growing up in Elizabeth's School 14's playground. It was our olympic stadium. He was a gold medalist on the basketball court. I knew his parents and brothers very well. I cherished their life time friendship. Having met Alberta, I knew Carl was further blessed. I am here 24/7 to be of any help. 276-5263
