Dear Doug,
My sister Marcia and I send our deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your dear Charlie, whom we called "Chuck." We have not see either of you in many years, but spent wonderful times browsing and accumulating special items from Chuck's booth at Ohio antique shows--Montgomery, Columbus, etc. He was very unique and always enthusiastic in sharing his knowledge. We both feel very blessed to have known him. My husband Bob, especially, always loved the conversations he had with Chuck. My sister and I will cherish his memory. We wish you peace. Phyllis Buchwalder and Marcia Gulley

Not many people find their soulmate, but I believe Doug and Charlie did. He was a welcomed member of our family; I will miss him. I wasn’t into antiques, but before that he was an artist. I am self-taught in water color painting, and Charlie spent a whole afternoon with me teaching me the basics, advising me and giving me his expertise! Even looking at the worst of my paintings, he would always smile and give the greatest of compliments! I have three of his paintings that I will treasure always. One more thing, Charlie made the best cranberry salad ever!! Rest well, Charlie!

Jim and I knew Charlie for many years through antiques shows not only as customers but as dealers and friends. Over the last several years we kept in touch in our Christmas cards. We always enjoyed and looked forward to hearing from him. All who knew him will miss him and that infectious laugh. Good memories.
Doug we are thinking of you and sending our sympathies.

Dear Doug,
I was so very sorry to hear of Charlie's passing from Peter. He was a part of Oglebay Institute's Antiques Show & Sale for as long as I can remember, and I know his tenure goes back much further. As a "newbie," Charlie quickly put me at ease, and I came to look forward to seeing him every April - his wit and humor were the perfect counterbalance to your soft spokenness and gentle smile - it is difficult to imagine one of you without the other. He will be thought of fondly and greatly missed by so many. Please know that Paula, Stella, I, and all of the Museums Committee Members and Staff send their most sincere condolences.

I can't remember a time when he and his great laugh weren't a part of the antique shows we all did. My heart is breaking for you, Doug. I love you and feel sure that Chatlie hears flutes now.
