Charlie always made me feel better every time I saw him...with a smile, a hug & his simple chuckle. I was sad to see his obit as I had not seen him in a while. We both spoke about the difficulty of quitting smoking. I know he's at peace now. Until we meet again in heaven, I'll miss you...

Charlie and I talked every few weeks on the phone. He always had a joke and I always something about my grandchildren. He did not like talking very long . He said what he had to say and that was that. He was a very private person. He always spent most of the holidays with our family and enjoyed them as much as we enjoyed him. He was a kind soul. My cousin Randy and him were close for years and years. He loved rescuing animals. He used to volenteer at the animal rescue. LOVED jeapordy. You did not talk to him when Jeapordy was on. Was very intelligent. He was my baby brother and we all love him dearly. And will miss him until we meet again.
