Saint Anthony of Padua
pray for Karl
Karl was a member of The Queen's Company, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards. 

He had joined the Army in 2009 and had been deployed to Afghanistan since April of 2012.

His family stated that Karl was the light of their lives. He was a proud and caring man who took pride in whatever he did. 

Military officials describe him as a great soldier and a young man of rare character, one of the regiment's very best and destined to go a long way in the Army. 

Military comrades describe him as one of the best and a strong and kind-hearted person.

Karl is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his baby daughter, Grace. 

Pray for all who are injured in the line of duty and who linger and suffer.

Let us pray that Karl Whittle is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
