  2. Our condolences on the passing of Charles. My mother had the room across the hall from Charles. As my mother is blind, Charles was very kind to my mother and would talk to her everyday and tell her about the outside weather and other things that were happening. I chatted with Charles every time I visited my mother. He will be missed. Again, on behalf of my mother Anne Helzer and myself, please accept our sincerest sympathy.
