Sending your family sincere condolences. I was sorry to read of Charles' passing, and will remember for a long time what a gentle, sweet man he was through many difficult days. He always came to HOA office with a smile!
Keeping you in my prayers.

I got to know Charley Neate pretty well in 1978. He was always a joy and pleasure when we worked together for more than 7 years. So glad to have called him my friend and neighbor.
