We will miss Charlie's presence in the Windsorwood Dining Room. I usually visit my dad evenings after work, and have enjoyed his company during the dinner meals. He had a wonderful spirit and we will miss his orneriness. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. - Sue (Bailey) Vance and Raymond Bailey
