Stephen and John Charles,I just learned of your Dad's passing and wanted to send my heartfelt condolences. Your Dad was an important co-worker and mentor to me for many years. Good to luck to you and your family.
I went to school with Charles from first grade through twelfth grade. We had rekindled our acquaintance before our 51st class reunion. He sent me frequent E-Mails with pictures of his granddaughters. I will miss him very much.
