Charlie, we worked a lot of years at the Railroad together and spent a lot of time at your garage after work feeding the fire in the stove. Going to miss you.

Joyce, My deepest sympathies on your loss. It seems I just saw you both, of course, in your golf cart! Love to you and everyone who loved Charlie! <3
