I was so sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. I have fond memories of him as a fellow teacher at Sterling High School. He was a good and hard working man who was very proud of his family. He often spoke of them. May your memories and the kind thoughts and prayers of friends comfort you.

My condolences to the entire Lawyer Family. While I did not know Charles personally, I lived on the next block over in Cramer Hill and remember the Lawyer Family as good people. May God embrace you and wrap His loving arms around you with peace and comfort.
