Charles was a fabulous friend. He was one of the few friends that I know was a true friend. He was real. He was always there for Rick and me. We will never forget you, Charles. You were the best friend we could ever ask for! Cheers to you, and Rest In Peace, sweet friend. We will never forget you!

Charles was a good guy. I got to play golf with him on a number of occasions. He was a tough competitor. And, played well. In a scramble, he´d be the last to putt because he putted so well. He took it seriously. He´d line them up from the front, back, and side, then he´s "plum-bob". He expected to make them all. He helped me in selecting my new driver. He knew a lot about golf equipment. He took a technical approach to what I needed. He was right. I play better with the one he advised me to buy. He had the same approach in making you a cocktail. He tried to make them perfect. He made wonderful "old fashions". I´m like a lot of other people. I will miss Charles.
