I have lots of good memories of going places with Charley 45 years ago. Sometimes, I would hang out at the DX Station where Charley worked. After he closed the Station for the night, we would go play Yahtzee at his Mother's house. Charley was a good friend and good influence for me and all that knew him.

Oh, how those pictures brought back so many memories of long ago. From his marriage to Diana, weekends at Hot Springs, going to the lake, the birth of Jarrod and Jeremy, and his ballpark days. He was a great father and a very proud grandfather. You grow up move away but I am very thankful that God brought Charlie into my life. Heaven has gained a very special Angel!
