To the Garmin Family,
I am sorry to hear of your loss. Charlie rode the Shared Ride with me to dialysis. It was always a pleasure to see him and I talked with him and he told me about his life while we waited for our return trip.

Uncle Charlie always could make me laugh!!! I most loved his "sneak" hug attacks at Harrisburg Mall while I was training a service dog. All my SSD friends and his good court buddies there would say "your Uncle Charlie is looking for you" and no matter how hard I looked for him, he'd always be able to sneak up on me and give a huge bear hug. His hugs and smile always made my day! I miss you but know you're watching us from Heaven and smiling down!!

Charlie always greeted me by tweaking my elbow. It would bring a smile to my face as many traditions do. He was generous and attentive with my kids something I appreciated since in their youth my kids spent a lot of time in the Garman household.

I always enjoyed Charlie's need to get peanut butter cups for trick or treat. They had to be the single cups. He would count how many he had and compare that count to how many he gave away the year before. It was something you could look forward to every October.
