You all have my deepest sympathies!! Treasure your memories!
We have so many wonderful memories of Charlie. Best neighbor and friend we've ever had!!!! My favorite times were coming home from work and he and Pat would be sitting in the driveway, under the tree, just waiting on people to stop and talk awhile. We love the Thompson family and will be praying for you as you navigate and adjust to life without your husband and dad.
Brent and I are so sorry for your family's loss, Charles was a fine man.  Prayers for your peace and comfort at this difficult time.
