Barbara and Family ;
Patty and I were sure sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. It was always a joy to get together with you guys. It seems when the kids were little we got together much more often.
Charlie will be missed by all. He was a very friendly and loving person.
Patty and I don't get out much anymore but we will be with you in love and in spirit.
Charlie is now resting in peace with his creator. He will probably be creating houses in heaven.
Love Jim and Patty

As a little girl growing up I was terrified of Charlie, he was a big man for tiny eyes to see. Over the years I found he was a gentle man with a big heart. Charlie was a man of few words. His love for his family and his service of God spoke volumes. I am deeply saddened for your loss.

My condolence to the family. Charles Lee was a good family man who lived a good life. He cared about all and especially loved his wife (Barbara) and family. He is suffering no more and is now in heaven walking the streets of gold. Praying for the family.

Rest in Peace Uncle Charlie. Gone but will never be forgotten.
