    I will miss your calls and emails Chuckie! You have left your brothers and sisters way too soon - you are the youngest. We will see one another some day but now you are with our Mother and Father and I know Mom is delighted to have you near her once again. Until I see you again - Love Loretta

    To Catherine and family, Rick and I have you in our thoughts and prayers. We will always remember Charlie's laugh, humor, smile and the light in his eyes when he spoke of you (his devotion to you was phenomenal), Rick had many fun times with him and Ron at the mobile station on West Church. I also, think about the great Birthday party at your home so many years ago. We are hoping that remembering the wonderful love you had for each other and the fabulous memories will help you survive this ordeal. Our sincere condolences Catherine. My heart is aching for you. RIP Charlie. Rick and Connie DeHaas

    Dear Cathy; my dear friend, and neighbor, I love you Cathy, and you know how very much I loved Charley, he was a dear friend and ALWAYS offered to help me all the time, he was a kind and loving soul, and I am going to miss him so very much, my tears and sadness still have not stopped flowing, and will for a very long time.
    He would always stop at my house when walking Shames, and we would talk while watching Angel and Shames play, its funny how they love each other now after hating each other for so long. I will miss those special times, thats what Charley was all about, he loved everyone, and was there to lend a helping hand to anyone who was in need. Cathy I love you and will be there for you honey always, any time you need me. My heart goes out to you, love you forever, Mariann Freeman GOD BLESS you and your family.
