    Dear Sue, Ann, Susan and Betsy,
    Caren, Pam and I are so sorry for your loss. I don’t think we had seen Charles Joseph since our last family reunion around 1996. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time.

    Dearest Sue,

    My heart is broken for you and for the loss of my fine friend. I was honored to meet Charlie about 30 years ago and he always made me feel welcome into our big little circle of friends.

    Much love to you, my friend.
