I always remember Carl with a big smile joking around. I know your hearts are breaking at this time at the thought of living life without him. He is safe in the arms of God now and will be sick no more. May God grant sweet memories of time spent with him until you are able to see him again in heaven.

James Carl,
I wanted so much to come visit you but couldn't because of lack of money.
I often thought of you and had to crack up when I thought of when us two big bears were chasing after that red Mustang that hit Buddah's car parked beside your house in South El Monte.
I miss you sorely, Big Kahuna, and love you.
I'll see you on the other side, Kahuna!
