To the Charlie Hodge Family,
May I personally express my sincere sympathy to all the family in the loss in one of the greatest members of the Elvis Presley Band. Charlie has always been an inspiration to me when ever he and Elvis were together. I have been an Elvis fan for over 50 years when he started out in 1954. Charlie and Elvis will always be a special part of my life in growing up and to this day I still miss Elvis. Now I will especially miss Charlie. I am sure as someone said in one of their messages he was well greeted by Elvis up in heaven. May he rest in peace. God Bless you are during your time of grief. All of you will be in my prayers.
