Our family moved into the neighborhood when Scott and I were in 8th grade Ang. was 6th. This blended family took us in & showed us kindness, quirkiness & love. We shared ever Friday night as family night . We ate dinner together & played cards. 31 was our main game, Sorry we kicked your butts each week though. We continued this for yrs. During the yrs Charlie had his children come & live with them also at different times. We got to know them as well. Time has passed by, but I'm very grateful to have paid my final respects to Charlie & see how "The Family values "are still present & passing on to the next generation. Charlie & Ann are back together with King Jocko looking down & smiling on their family .We are all blessed to have had them in our lives.

My family used to live across the alley way on Ohio Street from Charlie and Ann. We had a lot of family dinners together and game nights. One of my fondest memories is playing cribbage with Charlie AKA Weird Beard, Ann. AKA Agnes Gooch. Dad. Baby Huey, mom, Katie Clutz:-) and Kevin and I were called irritate and agitate and it didn't matter who was who. We laughed and had so much fun all those years playing games together. Charlie's laughter when we called him Weird Beard made his eyes light up, it was perfect. So many fond memories I don't know where to start or end. Loving thoughts to all of you and my sincere condolences. With love Angie Walker-Valuch
