  1. It grieves me not have seen Charlie for a number of years and then to hear of his passing. I’m in the real estate profession and have known Chuck for a number of years and we became good friends because he knew my parents from Walsenburg, Willie and Bell Chavez. My condolences and my Chuck rest in pease

  2. I was sorry to hear about Uncle Charlie. I always enjoyed seeing and talking to Charlie. He was a very nice man and always treated my family very well. We will miss him!

  3. I was saddened to hear of Uncle Charlie’s death, but it really hit me when I saw his beautiful picture on-line. His picture looks as I will always remember him. I’ll always remember Uncle as a very kind man, and he was always so nice to us as kids and of course, that continued when we grew up and included our own kids, as well. I’m glad we had the pleasure of knowing and loving him and of him being our Uncle Charlie. Our love and thoughts are with each and every one of you.

  4. I am so saddened to hear of Uncle Charlie’s passing. I have very few but wonderful memories of him that i will cherish forever. My prays and condolences go out to his family and friends.
