    Dear Maria,
    Our condolances with the passing away of your beloved husband. Charly was such a wise, nice man. We were shocked when we got the news.

  • Rick Cronk says:

    Maria and Family my condolences go out to yall. Charlie will be missed. He was an inspiring person with dignity and respect.

  • Steve Panta says:

    For most of those who knew Charlie, he was a man of great humour. A man who loved his family and his God. He was a man who was always willing to help others when they were in need. He was a man who became your friend after just a few words. He was a man who worked hard to provide for his family. But most of all he was a man of integrity, who carried his God close to his heart. He will be missed by us all. Steve and Julie Panta
