Carl R. Smith
Carl has always been a well loved and admired person. He will be greatly missed by all the lives he has touched...which are more than anyone will ever realize.

At the beautiful service celebrating his life this past January, there were so many wonderful stories shared. Each one of them painted such a beautiful portrait of a man who knew the true meaning of life...LIVING, LAUGHING, GIVING...all with a gentle spirit....a great legacy befitting a great man...

Because each person had so many stories to share, we thought if anyone has a story they would also like to share about Carl....this would be a place to visit, to share or just to reminisce.

Doug would like to invite you to email him anything you would like to share and contribute by emailing him. We will then add your story or your photos to CARL'S TRIBUTE PAGE, a celebration of a life well lived....
