Some people make the World a better place. Some serve their country and fellow man without expecting any thank you. Some raise wonderful children and set an example for others to follow. Some men love the earth and the wonders of nature. Some men step in to fill the role of father, mentor, friend and life long companion. Some men are given these precious gifts to share with others during their time on god's earth. Uncle Charles was all of these things. He was my uncle, my friend, my mentor, and he loved and guided me when I was a boy. He will be greatly missed by me. He was loved by all who ever knew him. To Diane and Rita and their lovely families..God bless all of you. Your cousin..., RonnieRead more
