Sandy. Jean and I want to share our condolences. Karl was a great friend and loved playing golf with him all the many years. He never changed his demeanor no matter his performance on any particular day and unfortunately a trait that I could not share with him. I am told I wore my emotions on my sleeve. Our prayer rugs are out for you Sandy. Will and Jean
