My sympathy to the entire family of Charlie. I had known Charlie for over 33 years and always held him with the deepest respect in friendship. I was most proud to have introduced him to Pauline and help to set the course for many years of happy marriage for the both of them. I am saddened by his passing but confident that he will join with our Lord in a well deserved paradise. God bless you Charlie. Rest in Peace.
