I am so sorry about Charlie. Prayers go up for you everyday. Please take care of yourself. You can
call me anytime.
Dear Pat & Family….
I was so very sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing! He & Roger had always been such good friends from those ‘growing up days’ in Leesburg…it’s a true wonder how they managed to escape from law enforcement & instead became model citizens. I know you will miss Charlie greatly, but he is now at rest in God’s Arms. I pray the shared memories you’ve had throughout the years will bring some measure of peace and comfort in the days ahead.
