Dearest Dotty I can't pretend to really know the loss you are going through right now, but I do know that I lost a great friend with whom I shared so much with over the past few years. Charley and I became quite close - I just didn't realize how much I cared until just these past few weeks. Charley and I coined the term "power breakfast" and had many of them. That term will now be part of some cherished memories. And the four of us built some great memories as well - we wish we had made even more. Please never forget that Terry and I are your friends too - we will be there whenever you need us.

Dottie; So sorry about your loss. I was thinking of Charley this morning and sent off an email. Then I read one that bore the bad news from a mutual friend.

Dear Dotty and Charley,

I am so sorry for your loss. Charley was a true Gentleman. He will be remembered more fondly than words or deeds can express.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith
