Sorry to hear the news.

________________________________________________________________

I heard via the network that Carl had sadly passed away, and I wanted to send a few words. I worked with Carl at AstraZeneca back in the 90s during the Icon project, back when he had a tache!!!!

He was always extremely calm, professional and pragmatic - which we really needed in such a huge, complex and highly regulated project.  A real steadying hand on the tiller.  He had a lovely sense of humour, was always fun to be around, and had a twinkle behind those GxP eyes!!!  I really enjoyed working with Carl, a real gem amongst some of the 'more typical validation experts' cohort.  He will be sadly missed.

_____________________________________________________________

Please accept my condolences, Carl will remain in our hearts forever not only as colleague, but also as friend.

So sorry to hear the news about Carl- he'd been with you a long time. Makes you think and appreciate what we have.
