To Charlie's family: I wish to express my deepest condolences on Charlie's passing. I have been missing him in church but thought he did not get out due to the extreme cold temperatures and snowy days and so on. So I started looking into matters. I am deeply saddened and will miss him. I have been looking for him in his usual spot in church. I had given him a ride home from Abundant Life Christian Center a couple of times and would bring him the communion elements so he did not have to walk the aisles to receive them. I had met Darlene once and spoke with her on the phone in the past to keep in touch regarding Charlie. For some reason I no longer have her number but have been trying to call the last number I had for Charlie. Of course, there was no answer or answering machine. Darlene, please call me at 315-697-2839. Leave a message or your number if you would. I just loved Charlie and spoke to him nearly every week in church. Truly, he was a sweetie! Sincerely Marsha Adssit
