    I only met Charles twice, but both times he was friendly and had the love and admiration of his family, and that speaks volumes to the man he was. We spent time playing Rummikub, before lunch he led us in prayer and accepted me as a stranger into that circle. He will be missed by his friends and loved ones, and even by us who met him, even if briefly. All my best to all of you who were close with him, I can only imagine the loss you feel.

    We are so grateful to know and love Charles “Dad” , his happy cheerful manner in face of physical trials. We remember fondly games of Rummikub with him and his contagious smile and chuckle. We miss him and know he is happy with family and blessing them. Bill and Cindy
