  • If I could clone someone for their work ethic and compassion for their job, Carl would be my first choice. He was a pleasure to work with and although he was a man of few words, he was a pleasure to sit and talk to. I am truly blessed to have crossed paths with Carl and will keep him in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest condolences to the Wikstrom family. We lost a good one.
