Gerri and family,
So sorry for your loss. In the picture of cousin David you put in the paper, he looks just like I remember Uncle Carl!
Try and fill your hearts with all of the wonderful memories you have and it will ease the sadness.
Hugs to you all,

Hello Gerri
Pierre here, from a long time ago. Sorry to read about Dave's passing. You guys were such good friends way back in the 1970s. Then you moved and wow, did we lose touch. I have fond memories of Dave and I hunting and working at that business in which we never really made any money! My wife, Pat, and I in a toy I recently purchased. We live down near Machias in a town called Roque Bluffs. I am still publishing a magazine, in my 43rd year.
