I always enjoyed our bantering when you came into the restaurant. Mr. Mcdaniel was a great man and a loving husband to Mrs. Mcdaniel. I could see how much he adored her and I enjoyed waiting on him at S&S. You were like family to me. I love you, rest easy. Sending love to Mrs. Mcdaniel and family.

Carl went on fishing trip to Gulf with me a couple of years ago. Had a great time and caught a good number of fish. However we fished in 80-100 ft of water so we spend lots of time cranking fish or bait up. Carl got completely worn out and commented that on his next trip he would have an ELECTRIC reel. I’m sure he would have. Really going to miss him.

Carl will defiantly be missed. He was a friend that we enjoyed spending time with. He always made my granddaughters feel special by speaking to them at church and making them laugh on a few occasions that we ate Sunday lunch together. They said they would miss him. He loved his family and was proud of his grandchildren. RIP Carl.
