Not sure what to say?

Sorry to read of Charles' death. I didn't know him personally that well, but my father and mother (Andy and Marie Sherbo) did. He was certainly one of the "founding fathers" of West Des Moines and a much appreciated businessman. Mom and Dad always spoke of him well. I can't remember exactly which part of the family it was, but I remember visiting the Vandeburgs near Manitou Springs, CO. I will remember you in my prayers.
God bless, Fr. Al Sherbo

Dear Sue and Family,
Your fathers life and early family, as well, made a huge impact on our lives in West Des Moines, and what a proud legacy!!!
God bless you in this time of sadness and celebration of your father, and your love for him! I am sending up prayers for you all to help you get through the difficult times ahead, also!
This generation of parents were so strong and caring, and we all benefitted from their guidance and loving examples.

My Condolences
