Aunt Geraldine, Linda and Rochelle
We were saddened deeply to hear that Uncle Charlie had died. He was such a gentle soul and he always made each of the cousins feel special. I still remember a ride down the alley in Benton after we had made a donut run and that was over 50 years ago. Gloria and I remember visiting with Uncle Charlie and you in 2005 and he was so sharp and it was like we visited with him regularly. We will not be able to make it to the services in person but we will be there in our thoughts and prayers. Take care. Larry and Gloria
