I taught Charles (and his wife) piano for about 3 years. He was a wonderful man. Always happy, always joking. That love that he and his wife shared was inspirational to me and you could see it so obviously in their eyes when they were together. They truly enjoyed each other's company so much. I will never forget you Charles and it was an honor to have known you, not just as a student, but as someone who was my friend... I can still see you and Laura Lee playing your piano duet at the recital... so happy, smiling, so much in love and that is how I'll always remember you. I will miss you as anyone who knew you couldn't help but love you... Laura Lee: When you lose someone you love, you're never the same in your heart as they take with them a part of you.. I am so sorry for your loss but hope you will find peace and comfort in the fact that you WILL be together again in Heaven...

Laura Lee, I am so very sorry. I'm in FL and won't be able to see you. I don't have the words to tell you how sad I am for you. Know that my heart is breaking for you and that I pray to God that He comforts you in this terribly sad time. Your memories should help you thru, knowing what a wonderful life you had together! Also know that I'm with you in spirit and that you'll be surrounded by friends and family that love you so much. God be with you Laura Lee.
