Uncle Charles, no more pain or suffering. So glad I had the chance to talk with you before you parted this heavenly earth on your final journey. Praying GOD will embrace your family during this difficult time.

P.S. I hope you and Grandma Marie are watching "Wheel of Fortune"!! Fun memories for me to hold onto.

God Bless,
Tina

Sorry to hear of Charley's passing, but he's in a better place now. I worked with him at Roadway for many years. I started in 1971 and have many memories of him. Always smiling, never complaining, and always with his cigar. I am sure his friends and family will have an empty spot in their hearts. My prayers are with you as you adjust.

As a teenager hanging around with Lu I remember seeing Charles on occasion, a gentle, kind and quiet man that put up with his "little sister and friend" lol. Although I didn't see him often, when I did it was obvious he loved his sisters so very much. It is a great loss to his family and friends but I know he was welcomed to his eternal home by those who have gone before and waited for him. May he rest in peace at the side of our Lord until we all meet again.

For a dear Brother and Uncle Charles, The memory of a good person is a blessing. Gone yet not forgotten, although we are apart, your spirit lives within us, walking beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near and forever in our hearts. May you find comfort in the hands of angels.

I will miss my brother very much. He was one of the best and kindest men on this earth. He will be missed by all who met him and all who loved him, but will never be forgotten. I always called him "Charlie Boy"....so RIP Charlie Boy, I will always love you!
