    I am very sad to hear about the loss Charles' family is going through right now. Charles worked in what I remember to be the 1st cell phone store we had in ff next to the veterinarian. He worked jobs in the mall as well, when it was hot in the 1990's. We also attended classes at Solano and university of phoenix at the same time, so we never stopped bumping into each other.He was a quiet guy who always spoke and acknowledged me. He was especially proud to be a father and whenever we spoke, we shared stories of relationships and children. When I was in the darkest place, he would encourage me by saying how much he wanted to be a father and how he would never abandon his children. When I picture Charles, I see him in the classic leather trench coat, and a huge smile! He always had a smile. I hope his children will remember the best of Charles. May he forever rest in paradise.
