    MESSER of indiana in the house of representatives Tuesday, March 12, 2013 Mr. MESSER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the memory of a constituent and friend, Karl Sharp of Centerville, Indiana.

    Karl was actively involved in Wayne County political life, serving as an election official in Hagerstown and later in numerous posts in the City of Richmond, including as a member of the Richmond City Council from 1999 to 2007. A life-long Republican, Karl also served as Chairman of the Wayne County Republicans from 1989 to 1993 and as a delegate to the 1992 Republican National Convention.

    Outside of politics, Karl was a man of faith and forty-year active member of the Central United Methodist Church of Richmond. In addition, Karl was a leader in the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, the Yokefellows at Earlham College, and the local United Way Board.

    Karl and his family's dedication to the people of Indiana will be forever appreciated. I will forever appreciate his friendship and ask the citizens of the 6th Congressional District to join me in keeping Karl's wife, Marjorie, children, Terry, Gail, and Karen, and the entire extended Sharp family in your thoughts and prayers.
