Dear Joe and family, Although I hadn't seen Chuck for a number of years, we were saddened to have learned of his passing. We'd run into one another during our working and retirement times over the years, and always had a good conversation, usually about our families. I apologize for not being with you at the services, but we've been in Charleston, SC for several weeks, and only recently learned of your Father's passing. He was a good man and a great firefighter.

I knew Charlie many years ago thru the Arthur Murray dance studio. He was a friendly and kind person. Sorry for your loss.
