Carl was my first partner on the Police Department. He had a great outlook on things and knew how to defuse situations with his calm presence. Never lost control. We clicked on a lot of levels. It was an honor to have known him. Rest in peace buddy.

Ich hatt’ einen Kameraden,
Einen bessern findst du nit.
Die Trommel schlug zum Streite,
Er ging an meiner Seite
In gleichem Schritt und Tritt.

Eine Kugel kam geflogen:
Gilt’s mir oder gilt es dir?
Ihn hat es weggerissen,
Er liegt zu meinen Füßen
Als wär’s ein Stück von mir.

Will mir die Hand noch reichen,
Derweil ich eben lad.
Kann dir die Hand nicht geben,
Bleib du im ew’gen Leben
Mein guter Kamerad!

I could never say anything negative about him. He always smiled and was a gentle kind soul. I still remember the night he scared me and the look on his face. He went down stairs so fast, that I think my scream scared him. Lol we laughed so hard. May his soul shine bright in the heavens to remind everyone of him.
