  • Dear Mildred & Charlotte Sorry to hear about the passing of your brother, Carl. As you well know we were inseperable for a number of years when you lived across the street from me on Westland Drive. I remember one particular incident when we decided to become " Blood Brothers" cut our thingers with a pocket knife and mingled our blood together.It a shame how time and space seperate old friends,but I remember Carl as being my friend and saved me from being bored to death for a few summers after we moved to Westland drive, and I remember your family well. My prayers and thoughts go to you during this time of grief and a certain loss of your brother.I wish I could have seen Carl before he passed, most assuriedly I'll see him in Heaven one day. I have lived in Houston,Tx the past ( 40 ) years and Pastor a church in Stafford,Tx. Rev. Keenan W. Ellis kenellis63@hotmail.com
