Uncle Charles was a good man. I lived with his family, Savannah, Phyllis and Kathy during part of my high school years and I worked at the Boron gas stations while I was going to school. Uncle Charles was good to me all of my life. He was a good uncle. Love you Uncle Charles. I will see you again someday. Love John Girdley
