    Cousin Frankie and family…I am so sorry for your loss! Cousin Carl will be missed by everyone who knew him. My prayers are with all of you. I ask for God to wrap his loving arms around you and give you comfort in this difficult time in your lives. Sending my love from Conway, Arkansas. I had some minor surgery on my shoulder blade yesterday, so I will be unable to attend the viewing and the funeral. You will, however, be in my thoughts and prayers. Love Cousin Davia Sue Burson-Carter

    Carl was a true gentleman. He never complained and was always enjoyable to talk to. I will miss seeing and talking to him, but I know he’s looking down on his family and he will know I will be there for them.
