    I am so very sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing him with us for all of these years…it was such a blessing growing up with you both! Those days are like yesterday in my heart…time that stands still in my memory. I can never hear “Morning Train” without hearing Charlie singing it! Sending so much love and prayers for your heart. You had a love we all aspire to. I hope you feel him watching over you in the difficult days ahead.
    Love & Prayers,
    Debbie, Dave and
    Ryan & Conor xoxo ( or as Charlie called them “the baseball team”)

    Phyliss, I’m not sure I can find the right words.Charles was such a positive force in my life and I will never forget all the things he taught me. He cared deeply for you, and we will all miss his quick wit, and his passion for life.
