    The sorrow we feel for Charles cannot be put into words. We loved him and had so many wonderful times with the two of you, in our many travels together. He is sorely missed and you, Joyce, are in our thoughts and prayers daily. We will definitely be seeing you when this virus is over and you are ready. We are here for you.

    All our love, Tony & Barb

    Joyce, so sorry for you loss. Although we had lost touch in the past few years, Charles was an important mentor in my life and I think of him often. Please take care of yourself.

    Dear Joyce

    Words will never be able to express my deepest condolences and personal feelings for such a premature loss in your life and the lives of so many people dear to Charles. We have our fond memories and I thank God every day for you my dear friend. If Frank and Mary had not “adopted” me so many years ago we never would have met.

    Love and prayers Melon

    Dear Joyce,
    You don’t know me, but Charles was something of a mentor to me. I met him almost 30 years ago (I was introduced to him by a mutual friend who knew I would be inspired by his work). It’s been 30 years, and to this day, I am still trying to live up to his caliber as a designer and artist. I speak and think of him often, and honestly can’t believe he’s gone. Know that there are a lot more of me out there.
