This is Carl Abalama & his typical grand smile. He's always willing to make someone smile or crack a joke. A Really great kid! I was able to see Carl when we visited Quinhagak over Easter break. Unfortunately, Saturday afternoon he was acidentially shot while bird hunting with his uncle & cousin. He is the youngest son of Kathy & Curtis Abalama.
The family has been hosting a 'wake feast,' in which people bring over food, sing, and visit in the main home for 3 days after a death. This happens during all hours of the day. The body was brought from the clinic to the church to be viewed yesterday. Today his casket arrived. The funeral is tomorrow. I will be attending along with Christina and Eric and Sherry Pederson.
