Sorry for you on your loss. Please accept my condolences. I'll always remember Charles as a pillar of the Bailey church as I was growing up.

After being gone for a month, we belatedly read that Charlie had died. Please know that we are thinking of you as your parents were a big part of our lives as our children grew up. We loved living on the farm amongst the cherries and apples with all the farm equipment and work. We remember with fondness the "chicken coop coffee cafe" and long visits from Charlie as he made his rounds of the property. We are grateful for your family's friendship. Ed, Jean and family
