My condolences. I am glad I knew Charlie & Vicky before you were married. Was I Vicky number two? & I think Vicky LaPlante was number one. Anyway, we were high school friends in Hawaii & we had a lot of fun & laughs in the sand & surf.
God bless & Rest In Peace,
Vicky Solterbeck (Griffin) from Oregon

I have always loved my brother-in-law Charlie. I’ve always called him Charlie Daniels because of his middle name. He has been a member of our family since I was 10 yrs old and will be so deeply missed. RIP sweet Charlie. See you when I get there!
