So sorry to hear of Charles passing. He was a great guy with a good sense of humor. I still remember the New Year eve's when you guys came to our house when I was younger and
the stories getting bigger as the night went on. I guess now Dad & Charles will get to hunt &
fish again up in Heaven. Take care & let us know if you need anything. Dave & Deb.
