    Over the years Tina & I would see Carlton when we went out to dinner and often at the same table. He was was such a kind and friendly person and always looked forward to seeing him. Never many conversations that he didn’t bring up his boys. He always made a point to speak to Tina and talk to her. She enjoyed seeing him as well. You all had a Great Dad and a Dad that was very proud of his boys. Prayers for all.
