    Carl had a decades long relationship with my mom, the late Edna Rubin. I loved him like a friend and a father. His love for my mom, his sense of humor, his sharp observations and “ telling it like it is” attitude, his great affection towards me, my late husband and his children and grandchildren, made him a delightful man to know.

    The very first time I met Carl, I was involved in a stressful situation. He came to my rescue, literally stood by me and emotionally supported me. How could I not appreciate and respect him always?

    My sincere condolences to his family. He will be missed.

    Your mom called to let me know of Dad’s passing. I remember many a day sitting in the house on Myrtle when Carl took his nap so he could play cards that night. My condolences to all Richard, Linda and your families.
