I was so sorry to hear of Chuck's death. I know the family will miss him deeply. I have many precious memories of growing up with him. I really enjoyed visiting with him and Peggy at Dale's funeral. I was looking forward to seeing them again if they had the opportunity to stop by Oklahoma City on their way to visit Yvette in Texas. My family sends our love and sympathy to all of you at this time.

Charlie was a great guy. I met him in 2008 and got to work with him right off the bat. We attended Jets Over Kentucky a few years ago and made plans to do it again this year. I'm quite saddened at his passing and will certainly miss my good friend Charlie Parrish.

Peggy and Yvette, we're so sorry for your loss. I always thought Chuck was one of the coolest guys I know, and he was more so being cousins. I can imagine Heaven just got brighter, though our world is dimmer. But I know, Mother, Aunt Alta and Uncle Bill are all smiling with Chuck there with them now. Love, Walter and Polly
