    I want to extend my condolences to Diane and the entire Walsh family. I am deeply sorry for the lost of such a wonderful man that I had the pleasure of getting to know in such precious time. Carl, My dear friend I didn't think our time would come to a sudden end. It was a honor to build a friendship with you in such a short time and I am forever grateful. I am extremely blessed not only to be in the healthcare field that is demanding but to also to have the compassion, patience, love, commitment and the ability to develop a relationship with you and Diane. However, when I met you and Diane I don't believe it was by chance. I believe us crossing paths was a blessing in disguise. Diane is a remarkable wife and a woman of great courage. She has passion for her career, and a strong commitment to her marriage while being successful at both . I remember watching your favorite tv shows with you "Perry "Mason", and "Heat of the Night". It wasn't just me trying to solve the mysteries that you already knew the answers to, but for me I felt like we were bonding. We both would try to solve Jeopardy phrases together and talk about various topics that either made us laugh or wonder. What brought joy to me was seeing the comfort of your gentle smile whenever I gave you a warm blanket. Those times spent together, I looked forward to everyday buddy! Thank you both for not only welcoming me into your home but also into your lives. Kristi S.
