May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Dear Jane and Amy......so sorry to hear of your Father's passing. He lived a long, wonderful and fulfilling life. Your family was undoubtedly the best neighbors anyone could have. When we were kids we posed for some of your Dad's illustrations. Your Mom was one of my favorite people and I always made a point of visiting your parents when I was visiting NJ. I have your Father to thank for
steering my sister to attend NSFIA. That resulted in my meeting my husband there, who became an award winning art director and we just celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. So much history between our two families. You were blessed with wonderful parents, and you blessed them in return.
I have meet the Col and always admired his work also. I have a personally signed painting of the first uniform that he presented to me at a luncheon in Keene, NJ. RIP Colonel.

Charlie was a great Marine hero and gifted artist. I was honored to know him and treasure one of his original paintings he gave me that hangs in a place of honor in my home from when he stayed with my family. I am proud to say we sponsored two art shows of Charlie's historic paintings and I am honored to have known him. He is a genuine piece of Marine Corps history.
