    Kathy and family, I am so sorry to read about Charlie. I grew up with him front grade school to high school and beyond. I have many great memories of Charlie and was proud to be one of his groomsmen 54 years ago. I know he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Wish I could be there to pay my respects to my old friend. I pray God will give you peace and strength in this time of sadness.
