  1. My deepest sympathy to the best neighbors anyone could ask for. I was so sad to hear of Charlie’s passing. He and I talked a few years ago about the grief of his losing Zackary, and my losing Casey. It really meant a lot to me to talk to someone who understood. Charlie was a good neighbor and a good man.

    Love and prayers, Marianne Hite and family.
