Ms. Lillian,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. Mr. Charlie was such a wonderful friend. I'll never forget his wonderful stories. He had such a great life and will be missed by me and many others that he touched during his life. Our years at the Centreplex would not have been the same without him. I am so happy to be able to call him friend.
