Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, but tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

Charles was my partner. Over the six years we were on the road we did close 750k miles together.
He was my little brother. We laughed together. Told jokes. Mine were funny, his weren't.
I retired June of 2023 and we talked weekly, sometimes daily. I am just devastated by this.
Charles, i love you brother. You are going to be missed my brother.
