For Charlies family I am so sorry you lost this man because he was a Godsend to the workers of Dept. 12 at Fiat Allis and also Allis Chalmers. The new workers in the machine shops did not have a clue how to turn on a machine let alone run one but with Charlies help they would look like pros in a few quick lessons. He had the patience of Job and the smile that took the scare out of the machines (some as big as rooms in your house). I always liked him and appreciated his talents. I just wanted the family to know he was loved at his job but in a different way. May God bless his soul.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.

It is never easy to lose a loved one, I pray you find comfort in Gods promise found at John 6:40 which says that soon we will see all our loved ones again. My deepest condolences to the family.
