Carl was our Pastor at Christiansburg for many years, & he was a great spiritual leader & mentor. He loved his God, his wife, family, & his church family. We both loved fellowship; he loved to laugh & have a great time, especially when it was God centered- yes Christians can have fun, & he showed that! Prayers to his wonderful family- his example & legacy will live on through each one of them!
