Charlie was such a great guy to work with these past years. He set the bar high for all owner-operators and was such a pleasure to talk to. He always called to say thank you for a load when we should have been the ones saying thanks. We also enjoyed talking to his great selection for a bride, Mrs. Joan. We will continue to pray for his family especially during these times and will hold on to oour memories of Charlie. We'll miss him. Jim Smith -Landstar
