  3. Charlie and I grew up together in Deepwater and attended Deer Park Schools. He was one of my closest friends as we grew up together. After High School we didn’t get to see each other as often as we should, mostly at Re-Unions. I would call him every once and awhile to see how he was doing. Thanks for all the great times we had as boys Charlie and may you rest in peace.
    Always your friend!
