I am so sad to read of Charles’s heart attack and death. He was a very compassionate person in my view, since he volunteered by picking up and delivering milk to local feeding sites for many years on behalf of Berkshires’ Bounty. He was devoted and consistent with this effort, and often had his son Charles help I believe. I am grateful for his assistance and I send his family my condolences.
Sincerely, Cindy
