    Charles was an amazing person. I rented a house from him with Derrick and Rachele. What a crazy experience. He helped show me how to be responsible and was such an inspiration in so many ways. I haven’t spoke to Chuck in many years but when Scot told me about their dad I made sure I went to see him and took Kevin and Tim with me. I also went and picked up Lonnie on the way. He was so happy to see us and although he had a hard time thinking he was thinking about others being Charles. He said Tim you need to carpet this place when I’m gone. Couldn’t believe he said that during his last days. He was amazing and Scot and Lonnie need to know that. He touched people in ways that is hard to express. We will all miss you Chuck! Love the Garcia’s.

I’m peacefully asleep
That in his mercy I’ll be judged
As good enough to keep
