Track Name: crooked smile
Crooked smile
Charming, charismatic style
As a father, friend, husband and child
You will be missed

In '49
A child's born second in line
Had a penchant for mischief
Carl and older brother, Joseph
Grew up tall, tall and handsome
Played and sang in a band some
Graduated and said, "Maybe,
Bob and I will enlist in the
Navy."
And off he went

As a sailor
Sweeping mines, playing James Taylor
Discharged and headed to college
For education like his dad did
Mature and finding his direction
And his great love in
Alison
And off they went

And his kids
For Andria and Joel he lived
Community and selfless service
Loving himself and all the misfits
He was true and he was good
Laughed at his own jokes, yes he would
And life's meaning, thoughts thereof
He said, "Hey World,
be thankful for all the things
That say and show
LOVE!!"

What can we do
When someone great is gone?
But say, I love you
And we'll always sing
Your song
