From Sara Gillahan...

Charlene and Mel, I was so sorry to read of Charles’ death. It seems no matter how old we get or if the caregiver roles have switched we still need our parents to be there for us. I know that he was such a cherished part of your life that he will be missed daily. Glad to know that he lived to see you carry on his legacy by raising two wonderful sons with families of their own begun. My thoughts are with you in this sad time. Sincerely, Sara Gillahan
