Carl and Kathy and family - Uncle Carl will be missed. I will miss our phone conversations about everything from the weather to the farming going on and everything in between. Uncle Carl always had a great attitude about life and indulged me in talking about the past. Many stories about growing up and about Grandpa and Grandma and his brothers and sister. Enjoyed hearing his smile over the phone. I love you Uncle Carl.

Many good stories about Uncle Carl. As a kid our family would visit the farm. Being from the city, it was fun to go there and see and do things that were different. Watching the cows being milked, feeding the calves and all the other things that went on both in the field and the yard was always exciting. Drinking the ice cold milk before it was processed was a real treat. When I was in college at UNC, I would go out and visit to have a change of pace from school. A lot of great memories that I will not forget. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your life and helping to round out mine with what I learned from you on the farm.

So many stories, so many memories, but I will never forget the long, spirited conversations we shared. Together we covered every topic imaginable and solved all the worlds problems along the way! Uncle Carl was my favorite uncle, and even though I had to concede to his #1favorite niece (she knows who she is), I was happy to be #2. We always ended our gabfest with my "Just remember, I love you Uncle Carl" and his return, "and I love you too Lin". He was the only person in my life who ever called me "Lin" exemption reserved for him.
Thank you for the privilege of your company and enlightening my life.
Just Remember, I Love You Uncle Carl.

Your #2 niece,
Linda (Hergenreder) Wilson
