My condolences to my sister Ruth and the Wilkens family. Carl was a good brotherinlaw,whenever I would visit I was always made to feel welcome, he was a good friend and I loved him and Ruth. Even though in the last few years I didn't visit very often I thought of them all the time. I shall miss Carl knowing he is gone,I can still see him sitting at the table with a smile on his face.
