We are sorry to hear about Charlie's passing. We sure did miss having him and Judy at Sterling Pond. Such good camp neighbor's to share the beauty of the pond with. Charlie was always helpful when the power went out, giving us the use of the generator for awhile or lending us his tools and such and just having good conversation with them. So sorry life was so hard at the end but I hope good memories of times past will be of comfort to the family. Praying for comfort and peace.
Love, Dan and Lorie
