Lynn & the entire Millsback Family, I was very saddened to hear of Charlies passing. For years I have walked my dog Griffin by Charlies house and that is how we came to meet. We had many great conversations over the years, and I will truely miss that. We've lost "one of the good guys" in town.

Lynn, Chris, Rebecca and Rachel: As you know, I considered Charlie my best friend in the whole world, since PHS days. We were Mutt and Jeff and shared many joys and tribulations. I am shocked that we lost him so early, and can only take solace in the fact that maybe the Lord felt he needed him more than we do right now! Please let me know if there is anything at all I can do to make your grief easier....if that is at all possilble. You have all our Love!
