    Dear Ouren family,
    Charlie meant more to me than I can put into words!
    There will always be a ton of memories that I will keep
    as time goes by. Charlie and I hit it off from the very beginning
    We shared that’s same interests in Husker sports and the Kansas
    City Chiefs for sure. His humble spirit and kind heart is a thing
    we enjoyed being around. Allied Universal and OPPD employees
    always gave compliments about Charlie. Everyone always enjoyed
    being around him, I miss him, but I know he is at peace now.
    It was nice to meet your family, and his other friends. Take care,

    Dear Ouren Family,
    I met Charlie a year ago. I trained him at one of the OPPD facilities in which we worked. He talked of his family and most certainly his grandchildren. I will miss Charlie’s smile most, Charlie was always so kind and had a wonderful sense of humor. We worked together for a short time but he was wonderful to work with and we became fast friends.
    So sorry for your loss, You have my deepest condolences.
