Sorry to read of the loss of Charlie. I first met this wonderful family of Frank and Rosemary over 60 years ago. Now the early loss of their three oldest siblings is very sad.

I was lucky to be able to know and play golf with Charlie. Our two families grew very close and I and my family are grieving with you. Charlie was a good and caring man......period.

I will always remember Charlie for his advise he gave me when my children were little and as a new Mom I worried how this whole mystery would turn out. His words and his posture delivering them gave me such peace that all would be fine and to just go with it. Turns out he was wisdom does rule the day. I will miss his hugs as they were always reassuring to me.

May the peace of the Lord be always with you.
