Joann I am so sorry to learn of Charles passing. I miss seeing ya'll on trips and eating out at the same restaurants like Circle Grill. Those are good times that you will have to cherish and so many more from the years you were married and even before that time. I wish you peace in the midst of this storm and God's hand to guide you through it. Claim His promises and you will make it through. Much Love to you and yours.
