Charlie and Dottie were the first people I met when I moved on my block across the street from them. They were delightful and I counted them as true friends. I spent many hours walking across the street just to visit with them - they were full of life. When Dottie dies in 2001, Charlie kept walking a life full of dignity and still giving to his community. He truly served his country and his stories of all that he went through were amazing. I miss him so much already - he was a true hero and a man who took interest in so many people and treated all with respect - he will be missed by so many. He led a life that should be immulated.
