Sat. Jan. 12, 2019 i lost my best friend who was like a brother to me of over 50 years. We had many memories, so many i can't list them all. This is one special memory i have and never will forget. Charlie liked lighthouses, so i built him a big one for his yard and when i give it to him tears came to his eyes, he was so shocked that someone had did something special for him. Tears are rolling down my face as i type this, i will miss you my friend and i know i will see you again and we will stand side by side and play dice again one day. I love you brother, Clary
