Carl, Linda and Laurie. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. The memories that I know of are from his early running days in high school. He stuck it out and he improved greatly which is a great lesson for anyone. That background and endurance allowed him many adventure opportunities which he accomplished. With love to all your family-

We grieve as those who live in the confidence that we belong to our faithful Saviour Jesus who conquered death with the gift of salvation eternal life. But we still grieve. We pray that this same Saviour will be the source or comfort to Tara, and his parents, Carl and Linda, his sister Laura, and his numerous relatives.
Humanly speaking, this young husband was taken too early in life. We can only leave this at the feet of our Heavenly Father who encourages us to grieve as long as it takes broken hearts to heal.
