Bro. Carl has worked the greater part of his life in the mines. He has been a hard worker and an honest
man in the sight of his neighbors and all who knew him. He met one with a smile and a kind word. He was
loved by his neighbors and all who knew him. A few years before he died he expressed a hope in Christ and
told me many times of his travels with the Lord. He never joined the church but often said that he felt he was
not doing his duty by staying out. His conversation was mostly about the good Lord and his tender mercy. He
was sick several months before he passed away but he never dreaded death and said he only hated to leave
No mother and children we feel that you did all you could for Bro. Carl in his sickness and tried to comfort
him all you could. Thou you will greatly miss him here just get ready to live with him again for he is waiting for
you beneath the Altar of God. You have given up a great father, one that can never be replaced in this life.
Sarah, you have given up a good kind companion. Friends, we have given up a great neighbor but our loss is
heaven's gain and I pray that we can all meet him around the throne of God.
