    Marilyn and family, my sympathy and prayers to you at this time of loss. Charlie was a great man and cousin. He has now resurrected and will live eternally with God. What a great family reunion he is having right now with all our relatives who have gone there before us.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie and then working with him 1995-1999, in fact we had office spaces at Union Pacific “across the hall”. Anyone who has worked in the business world knows that some days are “good” and other days “happen”. Charlie, however, always cast a positive light on even the less positive days. I can still see Charlie smiling, extending his hands and offering “this too will pass” when one of those days rolled around. Godspeed, Charlie.

    I had the honor of first being acquainted with Charlie because I worker with his son Mike at the UPRR shops. When the shops closed I started my construction business and was lucky enough to be able to employ 3 of the Miller boys Mike, Mark,, and Chris. They were always a perfect representation of how a son should be raised. Later on I lived in their old house on Laurel Ave for a couple years and Charlie and Marilyn always showed me nothing but kindness throughout their lives. I have never been fortunate to have many people I could show utmost respect to but Charlie was one special person. RIP Charlie, see you in the future.

    Dear Marilyn and family. I remember her Charlie as a kind, fun guy. When I worked in the St Wenceslaus Parish Office he would come in and say “from one Charlie to another Charley I’d like to book some rooms for the Primetimers”. Godspeed Charlie, enjoy heaven 😉❤️

    Marilyn and family we just want to say how sorry we are about Charlie’s passing and to say we are sorry we couldn’t attend Charlie’s services. I grew up with Charlie on North 17th St. One of my fondest memories of Charlie is when I would drive him across the old Aksarben Bridge so he could call you from this one phone booth in Co. Bluffs so he wouldn’t have to pay long distance charges .God bless you and your family Marilyn. Rest in peace Charlie.
