5: A note from Connie: | Thank you sooo much for giving me away 32 years ago - I'll never forget the look on your face when I asked you to do it... : ) You've always been like a Dad to our family, taking care of us, keeping us safe, and even giving me a place to live as I attended RIT. I appreciate you so much and love you very, very much. I hope I get the chance to show you someday!
7: A note from Sherry: | Dear Uncle Carl, I can never thank you enough for all you have done for us! You have been more like a father to me than anyone else and you have really been the only grandfather my kids have known! I love you so much!! Thanks for making my summers memorable.
9: A note from Rosie: | "Thank you so much for being you. I wish I could better express just how much you mean to me. There are so many things I would not have been able to do if not for you. I will always remember sitting in the tree in the front yard, waiting for you to pull in the driveway. Those were my favorite days when Mom told us you were coming to visit. I love you so much and I hope you enjoy all the memories in this book. Forever YFB"
11: A note from Sarah: | Dear Uncle Carl, I really hope this book sheds a little bit of light on how much you mean to all of us. I can't imagine a better person to express that to. I often refer to you in conversation as my favorite person ever, and I truly mean it. You have done so much, so selflessly for all of us. I am blessed to have someone as incredible as you in my life. You're the best grandfather I could ever ask for, and I never felt like I missed out. From roadtrips to letters to sleepovers at Grandma's: my childhood is soaked with memories of you. I wouldn't want it any other way. I love you, I love you, I LOVE YOU!
12: LOVE | LIVE
13: A note from Danni: | Dear Uncle Carl, You are so dear to so many people. You've touched everyone's lives with your presence. When I think of my childhood summers,I think of snow cones, Westcott's Beach, disposable cameras, walks to Video Loft, and so many other happy memories. Because of you our family hasn't missed anything. I can't tell you how many times I've laid in bed thinking about how much you mean to me and thanking God for putting you in our lives. I love you so much Uncle Carl. God Bless with love, Danni
15: A note from Katie: | I hope you know how much you mean to me. All of my best and brightest memories of my childhood are related to you in some way. I'll never forget | the joy I felt receiving letters from you, the excitement of getting a visit from you, and how you always asked me to sing the Dan Tucker song to you. I love that you always told me I was your prettiest niece... because I found out later in life that you told all of us that. That's what makes you so great. We were all special to you and you made sure we knew that. I love you so much, and I'm so blessed to know you. Love, Katie
17: Thank you for being the best! You always put a smile on my face everyday. I still love writing you letters & I've kept a majority of all the ones you wrote me. I read them from time to time. I was always proud when I got 100's on those quizzes you sent me. You've always been my favorite uncle. You're sweet, caring, understanding, and funny too! I miss the summer days when you would drive up here and bring me & Adam to 'The IGA Store' & buy us cap guns.. every single time! :) It was incredibly fun & those are the best memories from my childhood! Me & Sabrina both say hi to you! We miss you so much & we'll get up there to visit when we can! Remember you're in my thoughts & prayers continuously & you always will be! I love you Uncle Carl! God Bless :) Sincerely, Christi Joy Harmer | A note from Christi:
