Oh I'm so sorry to hear Charles passed on. He was a great guy and got to know him at Life Care Center before he went to the assisted living facility. He was a sweetheart and a special person. I wanted to come to visitation but had to work. My condolences to the family.

Sorry to hear of Chalie's passing. We had been true friends for 60 years and I used to see him and talk to him at the nursing home where I visited my mother-in-law weekly or more during 2011. My condolences to his family! God Bless each of you.
