  1. I remember Brother (Harold) Karr and playing basketball over at the park by their house. Respected him so much as the wonderful and always wise person he was. Thought a lot about your Dad, Carol. So many good and wonderful memories about you and your Dad. I am sure he is in very good hands up in Heaven. May the Good Lord be with you and all your family during this special time of remembrance.
