marie and family I am so sorry to hear about Charlie's passing. The kids and I were talking about you guys just the other day and Brian II was laughing about the time that Huey took him for a ride around the yard by the sleeve of his snow suit and we stood outside laughing our butts off. I hope you find comfort in all of your memories. If you need anything please don't hesitate to ask.
