I will miss Karl very much. I enjoyed working with him for over 12 years. AAA Sarasota will not be the same without him.

Someone who brightens a room with a smile and is always having a "Great" Morning our office won't be the same. I'm Thankful for being able to share so many moments from my wedding day, many birthday celebrations, and a few retirement parties with Karl. Our days were better when they were shared with Karl.

Dot and family, I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with Karl at AAA travel for many years. Karl always had an uplifting smile, and never spoke ill of anyone. A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. Now Karl is one of Gods angels watching over us. Karl is deeply missed.

At AAA I had the wonderful pleasure of having Karl help me plan many of our road trips of what to see where, and many out-of-the-way places to visit. He was a delightful man to speak with, and so very knowledgeable, all the while having a smile on his face and in his voice. My deepest condolences to his family.
