Karl was truly a gentle, sweet man. Always kind, warm, and as the beloved husband of my best friend, I know this to be true. When Minnie (Joan to others) returned from spring break while we were in college, she called me at school to tell me about the man she was going to marry. Years later I asked Karl if it was love at first sight as it was for Minnie, and he said he saw this “beautiful, long legged girl with long beautiful hair in a flowing white dress walking on the beach” and told his friends he was going to “marry that girl”. Just like in a movie. A few years later my future husband and I attended their beautiful wedding. The way they looked at each other reciting their vows, well, it was a special day. They went on to have two beautiful kids. I knew Laura more than I did Matt, because Karl look his lovely bride to live in Canada, so there were years that passed when we didn’t see the Hepp gang, but we never lost touch, exchanging letters and phone calls, many times Karl answered the phone, and talking to him was like talking to my best friend. He was always interested in my family, and shared stories about Laura and Matt, especially when they were young kids. His pride in them was real, the way he talked about Minnie just oozed with love, he was still besotted with her after so many years! No marriage is perfect, they had their ups and downs, lost loved ones, as any marriage will endure. We’re older now, more years behind us than ahead of us, but while Karl and Minnie weathered the toughest times....their kindness and devotion toward each other never wavered. Karl is the type of man who people will always remember for his good nature, and will be deeply missed. For Minnie, Laura, Matt, and grandchildren, my thoughts and prayers will be with you every day. You were truly blessed with a wonderful husband and father, but Karl would be the first to say HE was the most blessed. I love you, Minnie, and just a phone call away. Be strong. Karl was a much loved man by many. Love and prayers, Kerry
