Dear Paul and Sean,
Our sincerest sympathies to you both on the passing of Carman.
I will never forget all the times we had when we were young in Milton and Acton
and when we would come to the farm. Carman was a very kind and gentle person.
He will be missed. It is because of the Blessed Hope that we know we will see him
again in that coming day. Yours in Christ, John and Sharon Hackett
