Marsha and Brenda, there is not enough words for me to say to tell you have a very sorry I am for the loss of such a wonderful man. I got to know Charlie, and when I was with him he treated me like a son. Always have a smile, and always have a good word for me. I’ll never forget his kindness to me when he gave me his blessing to be with his daughter. He didn’t threaten me with a shotgun, or threatened to have me beat up if I hurt her, he just asked me to be a gentleman, and I messed that up. I know that Charlie is going to be missed a lot by so many people. If there is anything I can never do for either one of you please do not hesitate to call on me. You call me, and I will be there. Brenda has my phone number, so I am just a phone call away. God bless Bless all of you!
