To the Reynolds Family,
I was devastated after hearing the news of Carnie's passing. He was one of the most level people that I knew. I considered him my friend, he always had time for my problems - big or small, and always time for another glass of wine! I will miss him like an older brother. Thank You for everything.

We are so saddened to hear of your dear Carnie's passing. He was such a good person. We pray that the Lord will grant you peace and serenity during this rough time.

Carnie, I will miss you dearly. You were one of the smartest people I have ever known and the most amazing thing is it was almost all self taught. Everything you achieved you did the old fashion way, you earned it with hard honest work. You were kind and caring and always put more into a project, a relationship, than you took out. I am honored to have shared time with you and proud I could call you my friend. I will hold on to the memories we created together and never let them go. I will be here for your family as you always were for mine. From all the Sheldons thank you and we love you.

We will miss Carnie (God) as he was called by Dick. Carnie started out as a repairman for our computers and ended up being a friend who Dick would call and chat with. He was a terrific man and we will miss him. Prayers for his family who he often spoke of. Richard and Rosemary Szucs

The world lost a great man when Carnie crossed over to be with our Lord. He was a true friend for many years and both Colleen and I will miss him greatly! I know our Lord had a glass of wine waiting for him at the gates of Heaven. Janet and family know that our prayers are with you. Carnie is a very special friend and we were blessed with lots of great times and memories through these many years!

Carnie was my first internet suppler. I found him very nice and taught me a beginner what I need to know about the internet. I am very sorry to see he had passed. The last time my husband and I ran into him and his wife, he was telling us that they had found something else to slow him down. You, Janet have our sympathies. Carl and Barbara Todd
