    We loved Mr. Charles. Even after his diagnosis, there were times when his dry wit and keen observations would delight us. We are gonna miss our Friday night dinner companion very much, but we find comfort in knowing he’s free of this world and reunited with his beloved wife. Our love to all his family.
