  1. Hey girls,
    This doesn’t seem real at all. We were just doing this with Mag. What is going to get alot of people through your dad’s death is he loved his wife very very much. He could not live with out her, (and he didn’t). He knew it was time to be with her again he just couldn’t live anymore without his sweetheart.(or his Frow). So be strong and know that he is where he wants to be with our mother. I love you girls and we will get through this and know they are both watching over us.

    Love Michelle Stevens Hare

  2. I know this is a very hard time for all 4 of you. You are all very strong women and together you will get through this. Charlie was a wonderful man and he loved is wife with all he had, now they will be together for eternity. I loved Charlie and Margeret very much. We had some wonderful and crazy times on the ballfield. I loved to make them laugh. You girls be strong and stick together. I love all of you. Love Ang 43

  3. To all my neices:
    I feel terrible about your father but I know he is with his dear wife, Margaret as he wanted.Just want to say how sorry I am that I could’nt talk with him much because of his condition. I loved him very much and I hope he knew that. Also I am so proud of you girls for taking care of your Dad as well as your Mom all those years. You were sure a blessing to them both.
    God bless you all.

  4. Trisha, Sylvia, Charlene, and Christy, I am so very sorry for the loss of your wonderful Father.
    My heart is with each of you. Stick together and love one another. Lots of love Judy

  5. I’m so very sorry you girls have to go through this again, my heart breaks for all of you but I know he’s happy again being with Margaret. He has a wonderful loving family and they both new this.

  6. I am so sorry to hear about Charles, and also sorry we never kept in touch. His mother was my daddy’s sister. I never knew her, but I did Uncle Otto, and several of the sisters. My daddy worked with Uncle Otto in Washington, DC many years ago. I am truly sorry for your loss.
