I was saddened to learn today of Charlie's recent passing. I had the opportunity to meet Charlie years ago when he shared his many collecting interests with me. One interest we both shared together was the collecting of insulators. From that shared interest, I was given the opportunity to purchase his collection of insulators which I still own and cherish to this today. My sincere condolences to Charlie's wife and family. He was a good man with a good sense of humor and a thoughtful heart.
