I graduated with Carl. I haven't seen him in over 50 years. When we were in second or third grade we were in love. I went to his house once (on French Creek north of Saegertown) and he gave me a birch bark toy canoe. I took him to church with me once and we held hands under the hymnal. So sorry for your loss.
