  2. Christy and family, you are in our prayers.

  3. Uncle Charlie was the kindest, sweetest human being one could ever want to meet. I always loved how he could pick up a guitar and start singing a country song. He made it look so easy. He loved all his family and friends so dearly, especially Aunt Dean, Ron and Christy and Mary Anne. On behalf of the United States of America and our Armed Forces, I would like to say, “Thank you for your service”. I will miss Uncle Charlie and so will all the cousins and grand kids.
