    We were shocked and saddened by the loss of Charles. I thank you again Judy for keeping the postings going and updated. It means a lot to all of us and Charles was very supportive of that as well. Deepest sympathy to Neta and all the family. Leon and I are very sorry we could not attend at that time.
