Sorry to hear of Mr. Charlie's passing. It's been many, many years since I've seen him but I have fond memories of him as a teacher and esp. Driver's Ed Instructor at DHS. God bless!

His laughter, humor and positive outlook will never be forgotten. The ultimate Mardi Gras guide and true lover of all things New Orleans! So blessed to have him as an Uncle.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
