  1. Charlie was a great man.. I will always cherish the memories of him kneeling side by side with Dustin in that huge garden. How he laughed when Dustin ate that home grown pepper right out of the frigde! He just couldn’t believe it… Dustin will never forget it either, it was just a little hot! I’m pretty sure Dustin drank a half gallon of milk after that. Special times with a special man. My prayers are with you all, as you find as much peace as you can knowing he is finally home.

  2. To Celina and family, we send our condolences and prayers for peace. Your Dad is resting and forever in your hearts.
