To the Meinhold family: Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of Carl. I worked with Carl for a few years when I was employed at the Boscov's Distribution Center in the 80's. Carl was a great Manager of people and operations. He was fair, honest, and had compassion for others. Carl was highly respected by those that worked for him and his peers. Wishing all of you peace and comfort during this time of grief.
