    Worked for Carl at Telerent. He was an excellent accountant and taught me well. He and Lynda had my wife and me to dinner at their home many many times. They were gracious people and serious about their professions. I am grateful for having worked for Carl. Pls let me know of any service there might be.

    Harold and I are were sorry to hear of Carl’s passing, but grateful that his journey was peaceful. We cherish the wonderful memories of our trip to the Florida Keys with Lynda and Carl back in 03. What a fabulous time we had in spite of two flat tires on the way down. Carl was slightly upset. He was a great friend to Harold and I and we will miss his stories and send special hugs to all of the family. Please let us know when you have the gathering, because I sure would love to toast that old guy off well!

    Dear Joe and Joann,

    So sorry to read about Mr. Hull’s passing. I had the pleasure of meeting him at your wedding. Mr. Carl was so charming and welcoming it was clear he had that rare gift of hospitality that makes even strangers feel at home. He shone his light brightly and the world has dimmed with his transition. Nevertheless, I have to believe Mr. Carl passed those gifts of open hearted friendship, love and loyalty and his boundless joie de vivre to his family. Let his example of a life well-live guide you and may his wonderful legacy endure.

    Blessings of peace and comfort to you,
    Rev. Dr. Patrice Fields, Pastor

    P.S. Jo Ann and I worked together years ago at the NC Department of Commerce in the former Employment Security Commission.
