    So very sorry for your loss and will be praying for peace and comfort

  2. Charliee was such a kind, thoughtful man! When worked at MISD in the Transportation dept., he always took care of the ladies (drivers and bus aides) that worked there. On cold days, he often had our buses warmed up and the frost off of the windows cleared by the time we arrived at 6:30 A.M. or before.

    Charlie’s kindness and caring thoughtful ways will never be forgotten!

  3. Semper Fi, Chatlie.

  4. Sorry for your loss Chris, you’re in our prayers 🙏
