I was shocked when I heard that Charlie had passed. When the email said Charles, I thought it was his dad. I knew him as Charlie since 1961 when we went through Marine Officer Candidates School together. Then we bumped into each other from time to time when on active duty.I saw Charlie about three years ago at a Marine Corp reunion. It was the same old Charlie, full of life and energy. Always happy and smiling.So you have my condolences and sympathy. He was a great Marine and great person. You are fortunate to have had Charlie as a dad.
