We loved watching Charlie mow the lawn. He was in his bliss gently cruising back and fourth, not a care in the world. Our kids were all sad when they heard Charlie had passed...they always felt free and safe wandering in Charlie's back was like the wild frontier, watched over by a sweet mild mannered king. We also loved hearing his eclectic mix of jazz over our fence. He will be missed. Our deepest sympathies for your loss.

With a smile that could light up any room, a laugh that was so infectious that you would offen not know why you were laughing with him, and the ability to make even a sardine sandwich look like something you needed to eat...I truly had the best Poppi-Pie ever! May you be with all that you loved and enjoying Nuna, her food and a sweet spin on the dance floor with her to your favorite Stan Kenton song. Forever Love your Jenna
