    Carl is my Grandfather, I fondly called him Bappa all my life. I couldn’t of asked for a better Grandfather. I was very blessed with having him in my life for so long, I was 45 when he passed, Most people aren’t that lucky. I truly miss him with all my heart and soul but I know I’ll see him again one day when it’s my turn.
