i have so many great memories of Charlie, he was one of the first faces i saw in the morning and last i'd see after a long school day for many years. he was my favorite bus driver at Clever Schools, you could tell he cared for me and every child on that bus. One time we had brake failure while on the way home from school, he handled it like a champ and kept us all in the safest hands! i will never forget this great man! May he rest in peace and ill see him again some day! Prayers for his family
My uncle Charlie is one of the sweetest men you could have ever met. He would sit outside on Sundays with all of us nieces and nephews. He loved the outdoors and he loved God. You will be missed uncle Charlie. I love you.
I have very fond memories. Such a sweet man.
