The friendliest neighbor

I am so sad to hear about Karl. Karl (and Margaret) were the best neighbors. Karl was well-loved by all the neighborhood kids. I remember Karl would keep his yard and flowers immaculate. It was so nice looking across the street and seeing how beautiful they were. I also remember his love for his pigeons. I loved talking to him. My thoughts and love are with Margaret at this time.
Love, Rosie Brungs
