I am so very sorry for your loss. I also graduated from St. Dorothy but didn't meet Carl until years later. He had the greatest personality and wit. Hoping your wonderful memories of him will sustain you during this difficult time.

I would like to pass to Carl’s family my deepest condolences. I was a class member with Carl at St Ignatius. We would always find each other at those reunions and at the last few were able to sit and eat together. He would always tell the story that if it was not for our group friendship dating back into the early class years, he might never have enjoyed pasta and meatballs as much as he did. Rest in piece my friend
