On behalf of the Branson Family..... our deepest sympathies to Mary Francis and all the Otto Family. We all share fond memories of KO, where he never knew a stranger and somehow always made one feel as tall as he. They don't make Cattle Buyers like Karl anymore........ Peace be with you....... Arleen, Don, Gaila and Nancy.

Karl was always a great friend of our family. KO and dad, Jim Weber, were always great friends, stemming from the sale barn days. I remember him always scratching our backs when we were little, sitting in the seats at the sale barn. He will be greatly missed and we are sending prayers and comfort to the family.

Eddie Weber and Family.
