    To the family and friends of Charlie:
    I am very sad to read about your lose and was unaware of Charlies illness. Charlie was a fine mason and a hard worker. Charlie and Kim were pouring a slab for me and my memory of the day was that of Charlie running the power trowel wearing moccasins avoiding scoring of the surface by wearing construction boots. The teacher learning from the student. I used many alternatives but never thought of leather moccasins. Rest in peace Charlie.

  10. Fly high…we will miss you !!!!!
