  2. Mary Lou, so sorry to hear about Charlie’s passing. Our son, Mark, was home from Maryland during the Christmas holidays and Charlie was kind enough to come visit with us for a couple of hours.

    Know that he was at peace with himself.

    Love you . . . Carmen and Bob

  6. Chuck was my friend. That is not a word I use lightly, as I do not make friends easily. He simply fit, as a whole person, into my life. I loved him. I will not forget him, and I will miss him.
