Rest In Peace - Karl

Today I heard the sad news that Karl Wright passed away on August 1, 2010.  Karl was a regular at the old Henry's Outlet Store on Queen & Church, and that's where I first met him.  For his age, Karl was very strong and looked fantastic.

I think a couple of years ago, Karl underwent heart surgery, and he never looked the same ever since.  Few weeks ago, I met him again at the new Outlet Store in Mississauga, and I could not recognize him.  If it were not for Paul pointing him out, I wouldn't have known it was Karl.  He was very frail and weak.  In fact, he told me his wife had to drive him to the store.  See, Karl was a photo nut until the very end. 
May your soul rest in peace, Karl.  You will be missed.


  1. That's truly sad news. RIP Karl.
