Hey Tim,
It is Laura. My dads name was Carl but everyone called him Mick and Bruce's first name is Carl but he went by Bruce as a kid.

Sending our deepest sympathy for your loss. Our hearts go out to your family. I always remember Charlotte's smile, laugh, and sense of humor. Always looked forward to visiting at your house and "yinz" coming to our house. Many many good memories. Sorry we have not kept in touch. By the way, who are the two Carls in your family ? I only ever knew them as Mick and Bruce.

I was saddened to hear about your moms passing. Many good memories of your parents playing cards and visiting at out home. Aunt Charlotte was always kind and helpful to me and I was so grateful she shared her many talents. I will always remember laying out those patterns and sewing everything from dresses to drapes. May your own memories bring you solace. My deepest condolences.
