Marilu, Scott, Janet and the rest of the family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Praying for comfort and strength during your loss. Charlie was such a great man and neighbor. I loved our talks over the fence or when I would be out walking and stop to see him out front. I know he will be greatly missed by all.
