    Our deepest sympathy to the family of Charlie. We have known him for years! He dated my Aunt Wanda Jensen some years ago. They had many good dinner dates and dancing evenings. Charlie was always so kind and friendly to all of our family. He was a good man and now we know he is at peace with the Lord! RIP, old friend!

    Although we haven’t spent a lot of time growing up with you due to our being in a wonderful foster home a hundred miles away. But I always enjoyed the times you came and picked us up to spend time with Grandma Novacek..Fair, and just spending time. Thank You. And Rest in Peace God Bless.!
