Lisa and Family,
So very, very sorry and sad for the passing of sweet, funny Charlie. Charlie was a good friend to my family for 50 plus years. Our first home was built next door to Pearl. We played golf and cards with him for years and spent many a great time at cookouts and get togethers. Watching the Bears play on Sundays was as you put it, a Super Bowl party every Sunday. Charlie fixed me up with my husband, Mark Cady, and was our daughter Cassandra's Godfather. What a very special man and a very dear friend who will always have a special place in my heart. God Bless you.

The Harris, Cady, and McDonald families.
