like a lot of modern friendships i met Charles online about 7 years or so ago. I found a true friend to connect with. We shared many conversations about loving various foods and rock & roll music. He had a love for reading, and used to clown around with various authors. Godspeed my friend, and thank you for the memories.

Chip was my designated driver several years ago when I had been over-served and desperately needed to get from Belleville to Springfield . I will never forget his kindness . RIP Chip!
