Carl enjoyed breakfast each morning at Bob Evans. Kristine wishes to extend her sincere thanks to Carl's caregivers, Kelly, Jeannie, Pottsy, Jenny, Vera, Donna, Christel, Phyllis, Margaret and Scherrie, and all of the wonderful staff at The Oaks at Northpointe who dubbed Carl as 'Poppy' and made him apart of their family, as well as the staff of Genesis Hospice for their excellent care.
