I know that I hadn't been in Carl's life for many years, and I truly regret not pursuing reconnecting.  But, I have so many memories of our years together.  We lived together down at Skagit, and several apartments in Blaine.  We took road trips to California and Idaho, went scuba diving together and some things that are best left alone.  I remember the day that I met him, and even though there was a 4 year difference, it didn't matter, we connected immediatly. One of the last times we were together was, when Lynne and I stood up for you, when you guys got remarried. 

I'm sorry that I didn't reach out sooner, but just found out today, as we are still in Arizona.

Please know that I truly cherished the time that I spent with him. I am so sorry for you loss and your family. Dave
