With extreme sympathy. Charles was a very generous person who always had a good word when we met. His love and care of animals was greatly known. He will be missed.

My love and condolences to Marilyn, Chuck, Kim, and families. I didn't have you all or Chuck Sr. until later in my life, but I love you dearly. The last time I saw Chuck, he had a twinkle in his eye and his sense of humor radiated. That is what I'll remember about him the most. God bless.
