Default Semroc - 2013

Just found these in my desk where they've apparently resided for the past 8+ years. Picked them up at the NARAM in 2013 when we visited the SEMROC tent to pick up some new kits. My brother in law was with me and after talking to Carl, said "Wow, he's just like talking to a normal guy!" or something like that. At the time it seemed that the NARAMs were dropping in Ohio ever three or so years, so I figured I'd tell Carl what Tony said the next time I saw him.

The description of Carl by your brother-in-law was pretty accurate. I met the entire family at NARAM-52 in Pueblo. All were incredibly nice. I talked for a very long time with Carl. Seemed like we had so much in common, and I wonder if most who met him felt this way.

I miss Carl...

Yes, I miss Sheryl chiming in here every once in a while like she used to do. Seems like it has been a while since she posted. She is always welcome here.
