From: Lynn and John Bremmer
Relation: Friend

We enjoyed a long time friendship with Karl. He was always helpful, humorus and great to talk to and work with. Our first contact with Karl was when he helped renovate the farm house on Similkameen Vineyard. It was a joy to work with him and use one of his many talents to aid us in that new adventure. A truly gentle soul who will be missed by all who knew him. Our sympathy and love to Helmut, Betty and Family.
