Charlie and I graduated the October '69 class academy class, and spent our first days on the street in the Fourth Precinct. Charlie was one of the nicest guys I've worked with in my police career, and I was glad to be able to call him my friend. Rest In Peace, my friend.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face, and rain soft upon your field. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his
Forever in my heart, rest in peace.
