Dear Lavina and Family - We worked with Charlie at Taylor Freezers in the early 1980's. As soon as Charlie entered a room, his smile, followed by laughter was contagious! We will always remember him this way. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Diana, I am very sorry that your father passed away. You and your family have made a lovely tribute to him. I can see by the photographs that he knew how to have a good time, and it is apparent how much he will be missed. God's blessings to you all that your happy memories of your dear father will quickly replace today's sadness.

With love,

"My friend Charlie, I was a salesperson with Charlie when I started at Taylor Freezers of S. California in 1984. He had me over to his house to help me design my first yogurt shop. He, Lavina and I were on several Taylor incentive trips together. I played golf with Charlie in Las Vegas just a few years ago. He was a great guy. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My prayers are with his family"
