Memories Timeline


  1. We miss you Charlie. We had some wonderful times together. We will always remember your hospitality and the way you enjoyed life!

  2. I always loved you and Uncle Danny, thought the world of you both. I only wish things would have been different, but feelings get hurt and things happen that tear families a part and it’s hard to put back together. Always will love you both. Suzie….

  3. Such a fun mother in law and friend! Charlie was always busy with sports, organizations and family…She adored all her grandchildren, loved to garden and in the end reminded me what life is really about. I give her thanks for always showing me love, acceptance and affection.

  4. Uncle Dan and family, Bard and I just viewed the memorial clip and what a nice tribute to Charlotte and your mom. I have such fond memories of your wife and mother. She ususally stayed with me when she came to Flint and it was always filled with joy. Our last visit at the hotel was so enjoyable with my brother and her brother Carl. Your mom will be sadly missed by many and deeply missed by me. Love and prayers to all. Bobbie Sue
