My Dear Mertie, I am so sorry for Charlie’s passing, & your loss! You both were the BEST friends to my parents, & I will never forget his help when Mom passed. You both will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart from my childhood all the way up to my parents passing. They had the best of times with both of you and I’m so grateful for you both for that

Charlie served on the search committee that called me to the Presbytery of West Virginia. We both had an interest in meteorology! Charlie was always a wonderful advocate. My sympathies to Mertie and the family and friends of Charlie. Marshall will miss his green jacket! Regretfully, I will be out of town on the day of the memorial service, or else I would be there! Blessings and peace be to all....

Dear Mertie, David, Sarah and family Please know how very sorry I am to hear of Charlie's passing. He truly was such a fine role model for me and the other youth at HPC. And now in my later years, I truly admire and appreciate the rock he has been to so many, both in the church and the community, for so long. Please know how much you all are in our prayers. With care and love, Terry Dillon
