My sincere condolences go out to the Addison and Chichocki families and friends. He was always knowledgeable in his job and was quick to help others. Prayers for your families.

Left left left right left! After trespassing on Carl and Georgene’s property, and getting caught, we became fast friends! Carl came over to teach our boys to march and get equipped for re-enactments which he took Anders to many and the other boys to a couple. That fit right in with our homeschool curriculum
Carl thought of Benjamin’s Eagle project of redoing the sidewalk for the 200 year old historic Sadler house. He also paved the way for Ben to be in Boy’s state! Those accomplishments helped complete Ben’s resume!
Carl also talked me into being on the historical society board and introduced me to becoming Tannehill’s school marm. Carl was one of the most persuasive people I’ve known! We will greatly miss him.
My deepest sympathy to Georgene and Carl’s family. My prayers are with all of you
I am praying for you Georgene and the family
God bless you and your family, Georgene.
Georgene, Thanks for sharing this with us. I know you will miss him! Lean on your faith & know that God will take care of you through this. Let us know if we can help you in any way. Y Mermaids
