Guestbook

I met Mr. Charlie many years ago at the park only to discover him again when I would recycle. In the beginning I found him to be a quiet and gentle, yet shy man. Through the years I was blessed to feel the shyness dissolve as he shared a few stories, laughter and many smiles in those short but many visits. It is not the same when I recycle without him there. I am saddened that I didn't know of his passing sooner, I would have loved to have met his family and paid my respects. Please accept my condolences. Mr. Charlie, as I called him had my sincere respect.
