      Six years later (March 22, 1987) both Carl and his wife were killed in a head on car crash. The driver of the other car was also killed and would you believe he was a family friend. Their son Bruce was pretty sure when he saw the news on TV and knew it was their car, their car blanket on the road, and Betty's glasses on the road. - from Judy Hassall - 2001
