Default Very sad news regarding Semroc and Carl McLawhorn

I just received this email from Sheryl...

Scott,

Carl had to go in to the hospital last night for emergency surgery (aneurysm in his aorta) and died on the table. Please let everyone know we will ship out orders but it will be a few days.

Sheryl

Oh my God!

I am so saddened to hear this.

I and the rocket community have lost a true dear friend.

Truly terrible news!
Carl absolutely defined the word "gentleman" for me.
Carl and Sheryl were there from the very first moments Emma and I started competing and remained truly wonderful supporters right up until two weeks ago at NARAM When Carl stopped by our tent to give Emma a few words of encouragement. Oh how I will miss him.
Our love to Bruce and Sheryl and the rest of McLawhorn family.
Rest in peace Carl.

Steve and Emma

I am truly sorry to hear this.
Carl had helped me out many times with custom parts and good advice.

I'll prep a Semroc model and launch it in his honor.

I do not know what to add other than I am honored to have been able to know him. Bye, Carl.
