Charlie, Cheryl and family. My prayers and sympathy are with you. Your Dad was a great person and I am glad to have been a friend. He was like a second father and I remember stopping by and chatting when in Dayton. He never seemed to meet a stranger and I know he will be missed by all. Take care and my thoughts will be with you during this time and always.

God Bless and May he rest in peace.
