I am so sorry to hear about the death of Charles. When he and his wife first moved to Columbia, they lived in the basement of our home until they could find a house. He was Chief of Police in Columbia and did an outstanding job. He will be remembered as an outstanding citizen of Columbia. His family has my deepest sympathy.Sue C. Stivers
