  1. Charlie was a good friend and fellow employee for my 15 years at Mann Mechanical. My love and sympathy is with his family.

  2. TO ALL THE FAMILY – WITH DEEPEST SYMPATHY – SORRY WE CANNOT BE THERE FOR THE MEMORIAL, BUT KNOW THAT WE ARE WITH YOU IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. CHARLIE AND JUYNE WERE BOTH TRUE FRIENDS AND WILL SADLY BE MISSED. WE HAD MANY GOOD TIMES WITH THEM IN THE MOUNTAINS AND THINK OF THEM OFTEN, ESPECIALLY EVERYTIME WE WALK BY THEIR CABIN, EXPECTING TO SEE ONE OR BOTH OF THEM POP OUT TO SAY GOOD MORNING. THERE WILL BE NO OTHERS LIKE THEM.

We’re thinking of you. We love you!
