Jeanne you know I have no words to offer you and you family comfort except to say I know how hard this is tearing your world apart as well as your heart and I'm so sorry and my heart aches right along with you. I remember working with Charlie at Hershey's and he always had a smile on his face just like you and I now know where you hot that big smile and heart from so carry on my sweet girl in honor of your dad because I know he is proud of his little girl. Randy and you have had a lot of hardships in your life but you have each other and a strong bond means a lot especially with a strong family behind you which means more than you will ever know!
May God be with each and everyone of you and your family members as you go though this journey together and as always you are in my prayers.

Charlie's death has struck me hard. I was so accustom to seeing him working hard in the food pantry at Calvary UMC. He gave hours to this ministry every week and his presence will be a huge loss. There will be a big vacuum without him, "Precious in the sight of God is the death of his saints." Psalm 116

Dear Jeanne, So sorry to learn of the passing of your father. Your many entries of shared times with him on FB are a wonderful testimony of the love you have for him. While we have to let our love ones go from our sight they forever live in our hearts. May the Lord send angels to comfort you and your family.

Charlie was a dear friend of mine for over thirty years. Both at work and in the community, Charlie was known for his hard work, great knowledge, dependability and his sense of humor. He and his wife, Dawn, would always welcome you into their home and make you feel at home. My wife and I will miss him greatly. I have learned over the years to treasure these friendships. I will miss Charlie very much however I know he is now at peace.
