My uncle Charlie was one of the most
caring men I knew. He cared about his
family and helped us "kids" with anything
we needed. Uncle Charlie is someone I
always looked up to and respected and
always will. He was a well educated
intelligent man with a heart of gold. I
thank my Uncle for helping me go to
college and with buying my first car. Most
importantly for loving us. You will be
missed. Sandra, Lisa, Eric, amd Joseph you
all are in my prayers. I love you all
so sorry to hear about pinky and your son eric
