Charlie worked with me for over 25 years. He was my right hand man at the Post Office I am so sorry for your loss. I talked to him just a couple weeks ago and seem fine. We talked about Todd´s sudden death. I was blessed to have Charlie as a friend and co-worker. Mike Eaves or as Charlie always put it HI Boss!
