Jed and Kathy,

I am so sorry for your loss and that I just found out about it. I saw your dad this summer in the nursing home and he was telling me he was going to be 90 years old. He had that ornery smile and was talking about going home. What a wonderful man who always told it like it was. Charlie was loved by everyone. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
