Charlie was a special person. A great tribute to him is his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time. Enjoyed the stories at his funeral, some that we will never tell. Charlie was a great policeman with whom to follow. That was a wonderful time in my life and I miss it.

Where do I begin? As the child growing up? Or the man who served under him?

Charlie was a friend, mentor, co-conspirator and cop all in one.

The friendly cop as I was a kid growing up in Del City.

My first Sergeant, when I joined the Department as a know-nothing communications officer, years later.

A fellow prankster, who found a kindred soul.

But most of all, a cop.

Oddly enough, the day he passed, my wife (Who worked with us briefly, before we were us) and I were telling Charlie Stories, remembering pranks he and I pulled on each other and had pulled on us by others. Laughter filled the house with happy memories of times gone by.

Followed by a sad call the next day.

Save me a place Charlie. I think I still have some bottle rockets I'll try to sneak in.....
