    Dear Ruth and Carl jr., My deepest sympathy on the loss of your husband and father. My Lifetime swimming days will never be quite the same. Always laughing at Carl's one in a million stories. Talking about his job or good times in Florida or buying Ruthie presents for Christmas or her bday. The hours would fly by at the pool. He also always showed an interest in our lives. I recently had a life changing event and he would always show his support and give great advice. I know he is watching over his friends and family from the pearly gates of heaven. It was a pleasure to have known you. Sincerely Mimi
