Dear Robson Family.

I met Charles almost 19 years ago, I am thankful that I had the opportunity to collaborate together with him during this time.

We worked together developing, producing and selling leathers, he had a very sharp vision of the articles the market was demanding.

He was my teacher, partner and good friend, I will miss him a lot.

It's sad such an exceptional human being had to leave that early, but God have other plans with Charles good soul.

I hope you all find soon resignation, thanking the Lord that we had the opportunity to share part of our lives with such a good man.
