The world lost a wonderful man today
We know he was suffering and ready to go, but we are still sad
Carl Nuttall was Tyler's maternal grandfather
He was an amazing man, husband, father, and grandfather, I see evidence of the influence he has had on Tyler's life daily, for which I am truly grateful
Tyler was able to live with them for a summer when he had graduated from Ricks and before he started at the U. It is a time in his life he will never forget and talks about it fondly
I am so grateful for the way Grandpa Nuttall welcomed me into the family with open arms
They were so excited when we had the twins and loved to see them and talk about them
When naming the boys we wanted to give them each a middle name from a family member. We knew Caleb would have a difficult life ahead of him and it was only fitting to give him Carl as his middle name. We hope that Caleb will have the strength and compassion and love that Carl had to carry him through this life
We love you and we will miss you

Carl and Caleb Carl

This just breaks my heart in two. I'm so sorry and want you all to know that I loved that man! He would fix my car and lone me the "L". They were both so good to me. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Tear-jerker!!! So sweet! Thanks for that! Grandpa was the resident family/friend mechanic! He helped out everyone who went to college there! I love him! He will be greatly missed! :( I am sick I won't be there Sat. Makes me so sad. He is the best! We will see him again, though. I am so grateful to know that! Cute picture of Caleb and Grandpa!!!!
