    Denise, Altough it is greatly overdue, I am so sorry for your loss. I was reminiscing the other day with Lee and thought i would see if I could look you up. My heart is heavy. I remember the early years when you fell in love. What a charming and wonderful man Charles was to be around. Thinking of you and the girls. Many Blessings
