"Onkel Karl was my godfather. He was a real source of support and strength for me while I was growing up and a significant role model. I was lucky to have him in my life and his sense of fun and humor will be sorely missed. I am praying that his family receives the comfort of The Holy Spirit during this difficult time. He is in Heaven with the rest of his family and can look back on a life well-lived. "Well done, good and faithful servant."Matthew 25:23."
