Memories Timeline


  1. Kelly &Jared&Vicki Pop’s(Charlie) could always make me smile, and I will treasure the stories he would tell me as most of you know he would have you laughing in no time!He was a one in a million man that I’ll never forget! I’d like to share something that I wrote ( Don’t Grieve Don’t stand at my grave and cry I am not there. I do not sleep. I’m a thousand winds that blow. I’m a diamond like the snow. I’m the sunlight that shines. I’m the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the mornings don’t cry. I’m the butterfly that you see with my beautiful wings. I’m the stars that shine at night. I’m the moon when it’s full. So don’t stand at my grave and cry . I’m not there . I didn’t die. I only got my wings and now I can fly and always be in your heart and guiding you through your life.)

  2. I wanted to offer my sympathy to Audrey, Beverly, Karen and all the family. My husband and Charlie were friends for many years. I know he will be missed.
