Not sure what to say?

Nancy, we just heard of Charles' passing and are so saddened. We were in Texas for Vidal's mother's funeral that week. What a wonderful musician and person he was, and what wit he possessed! We will miss him.

Dear Nancy & family,
I was so sorry to learn of the death of Charles. I have very fond memories of being in his orchestra at Grimsley (1974-1977). He was a great musician and teacher. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Nancy: Charles was an amazing musician and teacher. He was more important than any other person in shaping me as a musician. I am always grateful for having known him.

Dear Nancy and family, I was so sad to hear about Charles. He was an incredibly gifted teacher and musician. Though it was many years ago, I still remember how much we enjoyed being in his orchestra class. I am praying that comfort and peace will surround you.

I am sorry to hear about Charles. I had great respect for him and his abilities. May God be with you. You are in my prayers and thoughts. Heaven is receiving a great gift.

Dear Nancy, Charles' family and mine lived acrose the street from each other when we were kids & then neighborhoods were family. I was so glad to be reunited with him teaching at WHS and later getting his help with traveling. Harvey & I are thankful to have to have had him as our friend. May God comfort you and your family.
