Donna, Dolores and I will be out of town Saturday and can not attend the memorial service for Charlie.  We will keep you and your family in our prayers.  Charlie was a friend and mentor to me during my time at SNH – FNH, etc. I think of him and the good times we had on several trips we made together many times.  He was truly a good work mate.  He will be missed.
