Carl made his wishes clear and you will find them written here: “Burn, urn and return, ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Though we are not in a hurry, dying’s a must.Rituals, customs and traditions of man, Are something I will avoid if I can. Funeral services I detest.A few mourn the loss, feeling happy they’re alive the rest. So my request is, there will be no service at all. To those that would have attended I say “Go have a ball.” As for arrangements after I’ve died, They will come and give me a ride to the crèmatorium. When they are through, they will bring me to Dow’s Corner Cemetery, the burial to do. I’m sure you already know my wish, But this note your memory will refresh. No funeral, no service and no people. I appreciate it. God Bless Love, Buck” The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks to Hospice of Southern Maine and the Gosnell House for their support and comfort of Carl in his final weeks.
