Charles, there are literally no words to express how good of a person you were. You were always around when I delivered the mail to the townhouses where our unstable resident lived. When I delivered near his townhouses after he threatened my son and myself, you would park nearby until I finished my delivery. I thank you for watching out for me during that time. You were like a giant Teddy Bear. I enjoyed talking with you on many occasions. Your calm demeanor and easy smile could put anyone at ease. You will be missed greatly. Rest easy Charles!
