    Karan and I send our deepest sympathies to all of the family and friends of our friend and neighbor Carl. What makes us smile and also brings tears will be thoughts of our dog Emma and Carl’s relationship. Whenever we visited, we would ask Emma “if she wants to see Mr Carl?” She knows his name and right where to run. As much as us, she loves Mr Carl. It won’t be the same on the river. We miss him. Lots of love, Gary and Karan Duggan.
