I really don't know what to say other than I'm sorry and that you have been and will continue to be in my thoughts.
You should already know how glad Mark and I both are to have become friends with both of you, and how grateful we were for Charlie's "know-how".
He will always be missed, but I know he will continue to be with all of us in spirit.
