As the time nears for all those that loved Sean are gathering in Knoxville, I pray that God comforts you.  May your hearts be burden free during this time of love, sharing of memories, laughter and tears.  Much love to the Karl family. I pray for comfort and healing. God is Good!  God is Great and so is the Karl family!

As we kneel before God, we thank him for the moments, memories and gift of knowing Sean Karl, the man, the brother the son and my friend.


He brought laughter when needed, helped out with dishes when asked. He was the consummate jokester.


Mike, you lived a life that was full with adventures. Sean did more in his short life than I will do in my lifetime. Now that you look back, you created memories in some of the greatest places on earth.


Laurie, you modeled Love. Pure true love. As I watched you take this journey with Sean, you always

Modeled how good God is, how great God is.


Justin and Steven your brother will always live In your hearts.


Thank you all for sharing your son and brother with all of us. We will miss him greatly


Sean......we miss you already. Till we meet again.


Love the Watsons.

You probably have no idea how many families, like ours, quietly admired, envied, respected, and were inspired by Sean through his passion, love and pure talent in the world of tennis. He has been referred to as a role model and used as an example of how an athlete should be and can be; both talented and humble. It wasn't until we were fortunate to become personally acquainted with your family through Jackson befriending Steven that it became obvious that your entire family is worthy of all of the same praise which reflects on the hard work of loving, dedicated parents and family. Thank you for giving the world such a special young man who has touched so many lives in his far too brief time here with us. He will live on forever through our memories and heart and most certainly through the legacy he has left us to reference for all the future tennis players aspiring to one day "be like Sean". 
No words can possibly ease your grief, but PLEASE know that Jackson and I are here for you. ANYTHING you need at ANY hour.  Our prayers are with you through this unbelievably difficult time.

Karl Family: prayers and love are coming towards you all as you go through this difficult journey of loss. Your faith is strong and you know Sean is at peace now and walking among the many angels that surround Our Savior. He will always be in your hearts as well as all those whom he touched and even those who were only touched by his journey but did not actually know him. I hope the family can find comfort in knowing how many people Sean touched during his short stay with us on earth and how your family's faith has taught us all to be faithful servants while we are here. I am so sad for your loss but know he will always be with you in your hearts!

Proverbs 3:5-6


Trust in the Lord with all your heartand lean not on your own understanding;


in all your ways submit to him,and he will make your paths straight.


We humbly yet boldly ask our great God for a mighty miracle touch. We believe we have received one this day and thank HIM for it. Lord grant Dean favor among men.

Sean, it's Nathan Irwin from Wildwood.  I just want you to know that me and my family are praying for you night and day.  To me you will always be the greatest.  I thought this before you were sick and still think it now.  Thank you for being so nice to me when you didn't have to even talk to me. I will try to do my best and be as good of a player as you are. My mom says that even if it is hard, trust God and he will take care of you.  Send me a text if you feel like it 615-636-1667.
