Carl will be greatly missed by us at The Arc of the Emerald Coast. I will always remember his smiling face and talking to him about planes. Our last conversation was after Christmas of him showing me a new plane he got from his sister. Heaven has gained an amazing angel who has touched so many people. FLY high Carl my friend til we meet again.
