Dear Mary, Glynn and Family, I was so sorry to hear of Charles’s passing. My son, Daniel McCormick, and Nephew, Nik Lewis, were friends with Glynn. We lived on Idlewood Drive when the boys were in school. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time. May God bless you and yours.
