My prayers and sympathies go out to Karen, Tom and their families. I know they are going to miss the physical presence of their Dad. I'm so happy for Carlton! He's been wanting to go home, see Jesus and be with his beloved Gail for so long. I can see his beaming face now. Rest In Peace dear Cousin.

I was glad that I had the opportunity to visit my friend Ace a few hours before he died. We met only once or twice yearly over the past 13 years, since we are in Michigan and he in PA, but we both really enjoyed those meetings. i would say that I miss him, but I knew from our first meeting that his heart's desire was to go to be with Jesus. He shared many stories, some I'm sure that he shared with many and a few perhaps that he didn't share widely. I admired him for his honesty in those moments. Ace truly believed and counted on God's grace. He has helped me to do so also. Goodbye my friend.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Ed and I shared some special times together, both on Long Island and after he moved to Sugar Grove. Marty and Andy and I would fly out to visit Ed. May he rest in peace, I'll see you again my dear friend! !

I have many fond memories of time spent with Aunt Gail, Uncle Carlton, Karen and Tommy in Wantagh on holidays and during the summer. Rest in peace, Uncle Carlton. I'm sure he and Aunt Gail are now together looking down and smiling lovingly upon the beautiful family they started together.

Big hugs to my cousins Karen and Tommy. I'm thinking of you both and all your loved ones who Uncle Carlton has left behind "for now."

Love, Stacey

Dear Karen,
Sorry, I was out-of-town when you called.
Your dad and I worked together back the early 1960’s
on Long Island and I’m so sad to hear he has left us,
you have my deepest condolences for your loss.
I hope he didn’t suffer and I’m sure he will be
deeply missed by us all.
