    Carver was one of a kind. I will miss his dry humor and practical words of wisdom offered to the attendees of our Monday night gatherings. My deepest sympathies to Johanna and Carver’s family.

    I wish to offer my deepest sympathies to Johanna and Carver’s family on his passing. Carver’s dry sense of humor, especially when he was offering “helpful advice” to our Monday night group will be sorely missed. It was a pleasure and a privilege to have Carver touch my life these recent years.
