    Dona, our prayers are with you your family at Charles’ passing. I watched the video/pictures of your family and his life and was touched to see him as a child riding his Shetland pony. I have many fond memories of Charles and I playing together as kid’s and riding the pony. Again, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
