    My condolences to Charlie's family. He was a great man. My family and I will greatly miss Charlie. Charlie was close to my uncle, "Farmer Jim" for years; Charlie spent so much time with our family that I thought he was my uncle. He always kept me in line during my years at the Bartlett School. Charlie will be greatly missed.
