  7. We will never forget Carl organizing the wonderful Robertson reunions. At the last reunion we remember him standing at the grill in his backyard and preparing delicious smoked barbecue for everyone to enjoy. Listening to Carl conduct the auction was a highlight, and we will always treasure his book “Fresh Eggs and Ham, It’s Just Country” that we acquired at the auction. We’re so sorry and Carl will be greatly missed.
    Love, Randy, Jeanette, and Gary

    We agree with Randy that Carl was a great reunion planner! How fitting that our final reunion with him was in his own hometown and even in his own backyard last summer. His deadpan humor during auctions had us actually wanting to part with our money. And his collection of antique outdoor thermometers was amazing! He will be greatly missed!
    Love and prayers to you, Kaye, and all the family.
    Glenn and Vicki Robertson
