  1. Dear Bobbie, Ricky & Danny: My love and prayers go out to you. Carl was a great man. So good to me and what a great laugh he had. I have always felt like I was still part of your family, even though Chuck and I divorced. Carl died too soon. I have great memories of our last time together. The boys were playing with a race track in the living room and you and Carl and I were visiting, waiting for my train trip back to California. Only you and Carl would have put up with me at that hour of the night!! All my love, Dorothy
