    As I have said many times in the last 2 days, Carl was 1 of the 2 people I respected most in the oil industry. I have dealt with Carl for over 20 years. He was never too busy to say "Good Morning!" He always handled himself the right way, and treated everyone with dignity and respect. The last time I saw Carl was 2 years ago when he came up to New York. I picked him up at the airport and dropped him back at the airport a couple of days later, after I took him to a great German restaurant for lunch and a beer. We had many good discussions about "The General" and "The War of Northern Aggression." I know how much he loved his wife and daughters; they meant so much to him. The world lost a great man far too early at a time when we really need more like him. God bless Carl. God bless his family.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found comfort in the words of Jesus at John 11:11-14, where he likens death to being asleep, and at John 5:28,29 - "All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." For more comfort, I turn to the website at www.jw.org (Search - comfort)

    I'm not sure how long I have know Carl but it has to be 25+ years. A kinder more pleasant man you could not find. Always a cheerful conversation. Even when we were unable to conclude a piece of business I always came away from our conversation with a good feeling. You could always count on a straight forward honest answer to any question thrown at him. Truly a joy to work with. A colleague and a friend, His slow southern style will surely be missed by me and all others in the industry. God Bless
