  • Thank you Patrick. As a family member my Uncle Carl did have a big heart and would help anyone if he thought they needed it. Everyone has a past they may not be proud of but that’s not for us to judge. It is our understanding that he had just left chemo and he apparently he a very bad reaction that ending up taking his life and causing injuries to Mr. Nichols. Mr.Nichols I pray for you to heal quickly and that you be in good health
    I normally would not say anything however he was my uncle & I loved him Please keep all his family in prayer, his children, 2 sisters, & brother. Most of all if you don’t have something nice to say about him please don’t say anything at all…..He can’t hear you its the family left to take care of funeral arrangements that u are hurting.

  • So sorry for the Nichols Family. Carl joe Howard was probably ogling a child on the playground on Homosassa Trail. It’s a shame he isn’t still in jail, so many arrest, DUI, and suspension of license. May God have mercy on him.
