My brother was my friend that God gave me, but you left without warning and you were gone so fast. But now I still have my memories of the past, I will you. Love you so much. Your sister, Julie

Dear Uncle Charlie, my fondest memories are of you teaching me how to fish at the lake in Ridgefield, and target shooting in the backyard at Grandma and Grandpa's house. I am grateful for all the times we were able to get together over the years and that you were there as my own children grew up as well. I will continue the Uncle Charlie sandwich legacy and you will be in my heart always ❤
