    I worked with Charlie at Fedex Ground, and I enjoyed talking to him every morning....I could always count on him coming in and making my day a little brighter Even after he left, he would call me and chat about all of his animals that he loved He will truly be missed...and I am praying for all of his family during this tough time.
