My Condolences to Mary, Barry, Bryan, Jeremy and his Family.

Back in April 2018 I had a privilege to visit Mary and Charles up in Cripple Creek Colorado one of his favorite places to hang out and as we all new that about Charles we also know He was a very gentle soft-spoken men, and in that occasion Charles referred to me as His daughter, not daughter in-law That make me feel so appreciated and reassure me how privilege I'm to be part of His family, I will never forget that moment, I didn't thank Him then but I think He new how grateful I was, Today I Honor Him with this Memory. May you rest in peace Charles Manis
