Can't believe you are gone Carson, you left us too soon. I'm going to miss the friendship and lunches we shared the last few years. He loved his family and talked about Norma a lot and he loved and was really proud of all his children, Pam, Kenneth and Michael and his grandchildren. My condolences to all of you; I know you are hurting and will miss him so much.
