Charlie was an amazing man. I've loved seeing the pictures that his grandchildren have been posting on Facebook over the past few days. Sue also posted some pictures from when he was younger. You can clearly see how much his family loved him and he left an amazing legacy. I don't think you could find a better husband, father, or grandfather. RIP Charlie.
