    Sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. I worked with Charlie and it was always a pleasure to fly to St. Loius and spend a couple of days working with Charlie. He was always friendly and enjoyable. He even introduced me to Ooey honey butter cake. Hope your good memories get you through this time of loss. You will be in my prayers.
